A brilliant route with a bit of everything and best enjoyed as one mega 50m pitch. Start at the base of the gully, as for Christmas Curry/Micah Eliminate. Either solo or rope-climb the first pitch of CC/ME directly up the gully/chimney to a belay directly below the right-hand side of the arete. Climb a short corner (or come in higher from the right) and move left to the arete and climb this via a steep crack to a sloping ledge. A short groove leads up to another ledge (possible belay to reduce rope drag). Struggle up the wide crack above then move right to V-notch in the arete. A precarious move over this leads to easier climbing up the arete.
