Climb the crack (crux). Easier ground is reached at about half way, which is climbed to the base of a steep, blank slab.
Climb the very thin slab to a ledge, then another slab to a second ledge. From this ledge a steep, awkward line continues up just to the left of the arête. Near the top, surmount a strenuous bulge to reach belay ledges.
Continue on easy ground to the top.
On the left side of the arête is a thin crack which splits a gently overhanging wall.
