Thoroughly confused about where this line goes. Went up first 3/4 OK, staying on the left-hand bolts at first when the line splits from Quicksnake. Then close to the top, where there are two bolts about 2 feet apart horizontally (one on each side of the arete) forced to do sketchy move right around the arete, ended up clipping both bolts, and moved up right of arete to left-most belay. No more bolts between the two close bolts and the leftmost loweroff (about 4m? I think there was a bolt for Quicksnake if you trended right towards its loweroff). Guide shows route going up behind the arete at the top, but that looked/seemed really hard for 6a (gets steep at the top)? Plus you would then presumably have to clamber over the top of the arete to get to the loweroff?

Got higher on this than expected, about 3/4 of the route. Made the mistake of trying to find a way to clip the bolt on the roof (the 6b route?) instead of going straight up the arete, reckon this would go next attempt.

Weird line. There are two that go up close on either side of the arete, took the line to the left.
