This climb is a cheap thrill, get on it. I'd call the move around the arete harder than 5.6. You have to trust some thin feet for a move or two but you step around to easy terrain again and you have great gear. So enjoy the view and the exposure.

A short High Country version of High E. Best to start just left of the arete and go straight up.
