BETA PHOTO: Aladdin's Mirror to the right of the buttress

Description 

Essentially a mirror image of Aladdin's Couloir, the Mirror takes a similar dogleg line up the right side of Aladdin's Buttress. There is more steepness and exposure but the line is less defined and traverses more. Start at the obvious vertical fault in the buttress and continue up right, passing the WI4 Aladdin's Mirror Direct ice pitch. With increasing steepness, bypass this on the right until a large snowfield is reached. Traverse left across this until Aladdin's Seat is visible. Climb to join Aladdin's Mirror

Location 

Right side of Aladdin's Buttress. Descend the couloir or off the plateau right or left.

Protection 

Small rack, maybe some deadmen. Adequate rock belays are available at several points. Probably more often soloed than climbed with a rope.
