Climb on good holds with good protection. The rock is fascinating. It looks loose, but you find it’s exceptionally solid and takes gear well. Belay before it steepens.

Continue to climb directly up, finally joining the arete truely. Belay just before the final section. Can belay here or finish it off.

After a step, scramble to a good belay. Exit by traversing north and descending easier ground north of "Camp 2015".
