The crux is the initial hand crack.

A lot of people TR this route, scrambling up to the left and skipping the hand crack start for a 5.6 variation.

TRed this yesterday. I accidentally set the anchors off to the right...whatever you do, don't climb the right face near the top. The huge flake feels massively loose, and would surely cut a rope and crush a belayer if accidentally freed.

Stay left/on the arete and it's a solid climb, and an easy TR to set up.
