Description 

One of the best arête climbs at Melrose and on this formation. Start low on awkward barn doory side pulls and poor feet. Core dependent move, will get you to the slapping sloper mid way on arête. Now crank hard to crimp up and left to stand up and mantle.

Location 

Located on East Side of Formation. Swedish Gangster is the obvious arête making up the left side of the Scandinavian Chimney.

Protection 

Good landing, pad.
