An excellent slab, then arete, of good clean rock ascends the prow of No.2 Gully Buttress some distance left of the top of B Buttress. The Moderate line traverses in from a small gully to the right and avoids the crux. Two direct starts exist, both Difficult; the right-hand one is the true direct line on the arete and involves a tricky move in an exposed position.
