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

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!
