This ice flow grows big and fat right on-top of the rock route "Black Buttress". A nice mountaineering adventure with snow, ice, and rock.

P2 (WI4+): Move right along snowledge to access fat Blue Buttress proper and continue to trees. 50ft


Protection 

Screws and #2 Camelot to protect first few moves.
