Ascend the lower of the two major vertical couloirs on the left side of the Right Buttress. Five or six pitches of very steep, mixed ice and rock lead onto the Right Buttress. The second pitch is the crux with a small overhung section of ice. This is a shorter, good hard technical route, without the commitment of the routes on the main face. It is straightforward to abseil.
