This has ~3 pitches of rock/mixed, 1 or 2 pitches of ice. Zig-zag up some mixed/snow ramps, bust left to meet up with the Big Mac Couloir at the top of the buttress, and then aid up the Headwall (A1) or escape to the right (4th class).
This route goes up the right side of the prominent buttress on the east face of McHenry's Peak.
