After failing to navigate this 6m route in its entirety the first time around. Slab moves are no harder than the arete, gear's probably a little worse.

Bit of a debate over the exact line. reached up and slightly right,used a cam on the arete, then headed left via pocket to top. A more direct version would be harder and poorly protected.
