Start in the Pursuit of Excellence corner and at about 15 feet traverse right and up to a bolt on the crimpy face. Climb up to a stance on the arete, get some gear, and head slightly left on some balancey and big moves. Come back right and fingerlock a move or two up to easier climbing.

4 out of 5 stars Airy

Clipping the bolt isn't the original ascent style but I would recommend doing so because the crimps are a little crispy. Some really airy moves up higher with good but kind of spaced gear. Excellent route that will definitely get your attention.
