Description:

Stick clip. 3rd bolt is left of an arete. It's not clear (yet) whether you get on the arete or just use it (optionally) for hands/feet. Originally graded 5.12a but crossed out and revised to 11b/c on the handwritten guide shown on Austin Rock pg 144. Graded 12a on the typed guide shown on Austin Rock pg 145. Austin Rock then lists it as 10d. Maybe he meant 11d?

4 out of 5 stars arete and a face variation

It seems like the natural line is to use the arete, but only really with the right hand - do not step around into the dihedral which is very much off route.

I suspect the developer actually intended to stay on the face for a 12a/b step tiny pocket pulling finale over the last bolt.
