Description Suggest change

Another option for accessing the upper mountain. Safe(ish) from rockfall and avalanche. Drier than the adjecent good routes: It's Not A Chimney and It Is Too A Chimney. The Burgette Arete was an easier route to guide than the above, but more difficult than Direct Petzoldt. Way less peopled than the routes to it's left. Why not go up the Burgette, snap some photos of climbers on the Durrance Direct-Exum and the Petzoldt. Check out the good It's Not A Chimney and Angel Boy Off Width route too. The arete is cool the overlap isn't particularly difficult, the rock, while somewhat fractured, takes protection, and it is lower angled than the adjecent routes.

Location Suggest change

Start Durrance Direct- Gold Wall- Becky Coulior, 200m east of the lower Wall Street Coulior, 280m east of normal route trail at black dike.

Protection Suggest change

1.5 sets, with runners,
