This route tackles the attractive arete feature facing the rock island.
Swim from the rock island to the base of the snaking crack. Traverse leftwards at sea level from the crack to an overhung niche. Make a couple of steep moves out of the niche onto the arete and wall above. Cracking jugs lead to a fingery, technical finish up the immaculate headwall. Sticking strictly to the arete makes this route a little harder than the headwall version. Jump off or downclimb the snaking crack.
