Cool beta, Kevin! My buddy and I have tried this route a few times, but this is different beta than either of us used. I guess there are so many options for different moves on this climb. I was tall enough to reach both aretes until the steepest part below the 2nd bolt. I heel hooked my left foot around the arete and made a huge move to the rail with my left hand. Then it gets real steep and you have no feet to clip. My buddy used right hand arete the entire time and a series of crimps that I cannot fathom using to reach the rail. He got it clean, but the best I did was 1 hang, so I am psyched to get back on it.
Anyways, sorry about the spraydown, but this is a worthy climb and, albeit short, very fun, and very safe.
