There are 2 starts to this route, the easier and safer being the right start. Trend to the right up a protectable flake and move left around an arete to a bolt. Clip that bad boy. Move your way over to the A-shaped roof and clip an old Lost Arrow (there is gear to be had behind a corner to your right as you stem up to the crux). Layback and stem through the crux (pulling the A-shaped roof), and continue up sweet cracks to the top
I want to go replace the old Lost Arrow (pretty rusty and scary - upward driven, nice!), I would do it on lead, to keep the route the way the first ascentionists left it for us mere mortals.
Any thoughts on that?
Nice selection of stoppers, maybe a few extra finger-sized cams.
