350m, 5 pitches. Climbs the obvious ice ribbon directly below the summit of West Buttress. Upon reaching the end of the ice ribbon, trend left over further short ice falls and mixed ground in a big left trending snowy gully/ramp system. Finish up a snow arete to the cornice, which can be huge and necessitate a long traverse leftwards to find an exit.
