Taminah Arete is the main southern ridge off the summit of Matternought Peak. One increasingly-popular route ascends the arete directly, and a western variation is also reported.
Ascend northwest from the western end of Taminah Lake, passing under the East Ridge/Dem Bones buttress, and find a weakness in the western end of the cliffband guarding the base of the arete. Alternately, Ortenburger and Jackson (1996) describe a traverse in from the west, which is mainly useful if one is approaching from Snowdrift Lake.
