Modified route on Swiss Arete
When we got to Glacier Notch, we traversed to the most natural starting point in the ridge. Most descriptions of the route recommend a 3rd class approach up the gully. Our route on the lower part of the arete was splendid, and very similar to the rest of the climb, so I recommend it.

Yeah, I don't know why you would do it any other way, unless you were worried about going too slowly. The route is still relatively short -- we only roped up for one pitch.

The ridge on your route requires a catsit move, with falls either side.
