Starts to the left of the arete. Hand traverse out right to the big crack, plug a #3 and go. Up through a bulge and easy terrain (crap gear through here) to a stance right below the obvious roof. Plug some gear out right then crank out the roof on flakes then cruise to the top
Look for the obvious 4 foot roof just left of the arete
.3 through 3 C4....A bit run out to the roof on easy terrain. Gear protecting the crux is out right and could be suspect. Protects just fine above the roof

Sorry Keith but you did not get the FA. This has been led and climbed many years before your lead. It has always been rated 5.8. Rock quality is suspect.
