Fine climbing which is both steep and pumpy - the E is for Effort on this one. Good gear but beware of rope drag. Climb diagonally right into Mars, above the fault-line. Move up then swing right under a roof, to the arete. Sprint up the leftward-slanting cracks, saving some 'umph' for the top face, staying right of a square-cut groove.
