Hey Andy, I finally got myself a Summitpost account - I agree with your account except that am a "far better" rock climber - not at all true! You're better than you think.
I also enjoyed the line you chose when we were simulclimbing the that one part of the Arete just after the towers. We should go back sometime for that unclimbed (?) slab that we were admiring across the col. looked like a decent climb. Hope all is well!
