The route starts at the toe of the Buttress, climbing the large grassy Yak Pastures to the overlaps in the buttress. Move left on ledges onto the edge of the north-east face then up on steep ground to regain the buttress.
The original ascent took 2 days and involved sections of aid through the steep cracks in the centre of the buttress.
