50m. Right again there is a prominent steep buttress. The right side of this often forms an excellent ice route. Start up an ice fall which narrows into a chimney at the top.

Climbed this and a route about 6 m right of it in 1997. The route on the right followed an ice smear and was probably about IV,5 with poor protection.

You climbed an unnamed chimney to the left of the ice smeer you described. Short Chute actually splits the buttress about 50m right of this point, although the new guide book describes it as you do, (probably because the writer used your comments.)
