This route climbs the lower part of the very prominent arete between Selective Cut and Lillarete before moving left to join Lillarete below that route's crux pitch.

Climb 6 pitches on the arete, to sustained 5.8/9, with solid rock but minimal protection, then traverse left into Lillarete near the diagonal crack pitch on that route. Finish up Lillarete.


Climb the very prominent arete left of the great corner of Selective Cut.


Wired nuts and cams to 3" plus a few thin pins. Crampons and ice axe for descent.
