|170m, 5 pitches. The prominent and continuous steep icy groove on the right-hand side of the north-west face of the buttress provides an interesting and sustained route. The route starts 100m right of ‘The Scene’ (and about 10m right of ‘Crow Road’)|
1. 30m Climb directly up steep ice to belay right of a steep icefall, beneath a roof
2. 20m Make steep moves out left (crux), then continue up to gain easier angled slope above to a rock belay on a large terrace, with a large pinnacle 20m to the right.
3. 50m Continue up the icy groove to a belay on the right.
4 & 5. 70m Move left up steeper ice to gain easier ground above. Continue to the top.
