Traverse in from the right. Climb the arete to the top.


Climb the obvious left arete of the main face 15 feet left of the start to Tennessee.


Horizontals for pro. It can be toproped from a tree anchor at the top of the cliff.

So what makes this 40 foot route 4 stars? What did you like about it? Nov 9, 2011

M Sprague, I added Delaney's Arete and gave it 4 stars because it's an area classic. The position on the arete and the climbing are great. It was also contributed by a badass New England/Colorado climber back when 5.11 was a testpiece grade in the region. It doesn't get the traffic it deserves, while the routes right next to it get toproped to death by huge parties. Please climb it and see what you think! Nov 12, 2011

Either I was doing it totally wrong, or this is a damn hard 11. Jul 15, 2017

Tech, slab, balance ...things you want in an 11, but all miserable movement and not sure what makes it a 4 star ... Great and easy anchors though, so worth a burn! Mar 1, 2018

Yeah, to be perfectly honest I can't really remember this route. It's been ages. I posted it back before I really "got" mountain project. Someone who's done it recently, feel free to put a better description here in the comments, and I'll update the route page. Mar 1, 2018
