Begin on the left side of the arete near the cross. Climb 15-20 feet of unprotected 5.8+ish to a horizontal where you can get solid pro. Continue on easy ground to the huge ledge.

Read the plaque on the ledge for a fallen climber. (Are you freaked out yet?) Step over to the right side of the ledge and work in some creative gear. Pull over the roof on solid holds and enjoy the exposure. Angle right to a two bolt anchor.
