Out on the right side of the biggest buttress in the area. Follow the flake until it ends, and then climb up right into the blunt arete. Continue up, going at times around to the right side of the arete for a hold or two. Soak up a few rests here and there, and then fight past two small overlaps, until easy climbing to the chains.

3 out of 5 stars Delicate

Did on a windy afternoon, though my hands were frozen and couldn't feel the tiny crimps, I thought the wind my blow me off the arete. Tricky beta navigating the arete.

3 out of 5 stars Good route

Thin and technical, but not sharp or too crimpy. Would've been a flash, but I was on it once several years ago.
