Negotiate the fixed chain to a semi-hanging belay with a small ledge. Bridge the open-book corner, moving out onto the righthand wall around midheight then back into the corner for a thought-provoking finish.

Scramble up the fixed rope (which can be used as a runner) and after clipping the first bolt of 'Weak Flesh' head up and right over a big flake and into the corner. Surmount three steps then make an unlikely move out right to a big jug on the arete. Pad on up to the summit.
