Traverse the lowest break to the arete by strenuous jamming and no footholds. Lassoing the spike on Promontory Traverse alleviates the need to place runners on the crucial part of the route and is more like E1 5c. Pull onto the ledge on the nose awkwardly, to a possible belay. The best way on is by the exposed and awkward Easy Exit up the crest of the buttress.
