Make technical moves up the left arete; minimal gear.

The grade of this one has bounced around in past guides. 5b is probably right if you stick to the RH-side of the arete. The further leftwards you go, the easier it gets.

Once you reach the gear you've done it, I'd go with 5a but the landing is ok

Somehow this gets E1 5c in the BMC guide! Softest E1 in existence?
