Start on the good rail. Smear right foot, heel hook left. Do a big move with left hand to a sloper on the arete with a thumb-catch. Hand-heel match on the start hold and move right to a crimp-pinch. Rock over, hit the lip, and top out.
If facing Not So Gentle Lovin', look right and go into the corridor.

This problem is hard to grade. It is really only 3 moves. I thought the first move was pretty hard. It is a pretty huge lock-off to a really bad sloper, Hand heel matching is pretty awkward, even for me, and I have been called "weirdly flexible". Without that heel hook the problem would be much much harder. The real difficulty is sticking and then controlling the left hand sloper while you fiddle around with the feet.
