16m. Mantel up the left-hand side of the front face, linking ledges, move right up to a slabby groove and climb this to more ledges. Escape up the chimney away on the right. A direct finish above the groove is better but harder, though still 5a.

A 5a bouldery start, but quite bold above. Neither description clearly differentiates this route from Blizzard Buttress.
