Left Buttress Direct Start

Type: 
Alpine
Description: 
Climb directly to the ledge traversed by the Original Route by either (i) the sustained face to the left of the lowest promontory of rock, possibly dealing with a couple of small overhangs en route, or (ii) a corner system directly below the upper buttress. Some parties have started up 3.51ii and traversed into 3.51i. From the ledge, continue up prominent wide cracks in the bottom cliffs to the right of the crest of the buttress (grade 18). Joins the Original Route where the gradient eases.
