The amazing arete gives a magnificent pitch for which the word 'exposed' is nowhere near descriptive enough. Start right of Shrike, just right of an arete, by a flake/crack that leads to an overhang. Climb the flake/crack up to the roof and make a hard pull over this. Swing leftwards to a flake, then climb up the thin flake and wall to the arete above. Follow the arete to a good spike on the right, move up and regain the true arete again by the overhang. This leads fairly directly all the way to the top. Sensational!
