Suggested alternative line for Chien. It would also to traverse across into Sundare with hands at the level of my feet....this photo was taken before the rock fall.

Thanks for that. Is the grade the same for your suggested line?

Surely you should just climb the new arete and the grade is just what that is now.

Wasn't a lot of great gear there previously. Is the arÍte any harder now?

The arÍte is still climbable I guess, but there is no pro until you get to the last couple of feet, the rock has fallen away along the line of the gear/finger crack. My suggested line is HVS 5a I reckon - I didn't check the direct/old line, but it is effectively solo. Incoming tide prevented anything other than escape.
