Left Buttress 3+ 10

From the névé, 200m of pleasant scrambling on good rock (crux 10) is followed by 40o snowslopes and final exit gullies onto the South Summit. Superb climbing.

Excellent rock climbing, best followed up a weakness on the right side (crux 12), although the centre of the buttress has been used (crux 15). Follow the snowslope to exit onto the South Summit.
