16m. Mantel up the left-hand side of the front face, linking ledges, move right up to a slabby groove and climb this to a bigger ledge. The normal finish above the groove is the best finale though the original escape up the chimney away on the right (Blizzard Buttress) is not without interest and was a good effort for its day.

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