'Ari-an Supremacy takes the obvious gully about 7metres to the right of 'Force It'. I believe it now has a bolted anchor just to the right of the first major chimney section. It's best climbed as a trad route, going through two chimneys to pop out onto a large belay ledge about 30 metres up. Beyond there, Ari-an Supremacy traverses the ledge, turning a block, and climbing a small arete to eventually top out on the ridge. While the second pitch is fairly easy, there's not a great deal of pro. All in all, I'd say it's closer to 60-70m all the way to the top.'

a direct finish from the start of the second pitch of Arian Supremacy; Above the belay ledge at 30 metres, the route heads directly for a roof with ‘awesome hooks,’ and then towards ‘easier ground’ on snow to the double bolt belay.

The steep roof crack between Force It, and Arian Supremacy. Pumpy moves lead up through the cracks and left to the belay of the first pitch of Force It

The double bolt belay was installed by Jono Clarke by traversing in from the
gully. He then cleaned all the loose rock off pitch one and left the route
for someone else to claim. During the 2015 Ice and Mixed Festival Daniel
Joll told us to climb the first pitch for the learning to lead clinic, and I
fell off at the crux before getting up on the second try. We went back a few
days later to climb both pitches. Dan reckons the protection is good, but as
a novice trad-climber, I didn't find many good placements for pro.
