βeta: Is poorly describe? Is a good route and worth a star if the face is climbed directly and worth E2 5c (hard for 5c!!). Using holds round the right arete is some sort of hash with the top of the HVS validation and must be rubbish and easy, no wonder some people find this easy. Interestingly the earliest description i can find in the 1989 guide just describes it as a direct finish to Old Salt and nothing about the arete. I think the arete bit comes from after you have done the moves up the face you end up being stood on the break and the final topout move would be eliminate without the arete which is now in easy reach.
