This is an odd route. It's supposed to follow an arete like the name implies, but it begins by following a crack in something of a chimney, then after the first bolt it starts to get on the "arete". Unfortunately, it appears that a hold broke off, so that plus the amount of polish on the route make this previous 5.6 into a 5.10-. The crux is getting past the first bolt. Lieback the crack and balance on iffy footholds to reach a good position on the blunt, slabby arete. The rest of the route is very enjoyable and would get three stars if it wasn't for the unnaturally difficult beginning.


Just down the hill from Edelweisskante, to the right of the chimney which is Edelweissriss.


6 bolts + pigtail anchor
