Description 

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.

Getting There 

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.

A fine route in a wild setting, with great exposure and a couple of interesting pitches, ending at a summit. Described by Ortenburger and Jackson (1996). Also on summitpost.com, and also mentioned in a recent issue of Climbing (September 2009, #278).P1: 5.9. Start up a stemming corner. This leads to an orange face crossed by some cracks. We went up the leftmost splitter, which turned out to be about 20 feet of nothing but purple...[more]   Browse More Classics in WY

We down climbed to the saddle on the east side of the peak, as described in the guidebook, belaying the pitch that reached that notch, then descended south, on the east side of the arete, to reach the base and start of the route. We didn't like the wet/snowy descent to the north and would recommend at least looking at this option.
