A highly technical route up the arete. Use ancient bullet-marks to reach the first jugs then make some balancy moves to the top. The crux is the start but the top is scary and a mat is of limited use. Very-highball f7A. A direct start is f7A+.

Does this go straight up the arete or up to the large hold by the gully then traverse right to the arete ?

By the large hold. It's 6c straight up the arete.
