victim of mathematics 27 Aug, 2018 Lead O/S Oddly named, given that you don't really climb the slanting crack. A bit intimidating at the top, but the holds are there. Technically much harder than Eastern Arete.

y2keable 5 Oct, 2014 Lead rpt Can't understand why no one likes this climb, I thought it was great. Out of the two MS routes on this buttress (Eastern Arête being the other one), I think this one deserves the 2 stars. Some great moves, especially climbing up the diagonal crack. Some great exposure and plenty of gear. I love it!
