Start at the large ramp just left of the center of the buttress. Low 5th class leads to a corner beneath a blocky roof. Traverse right (5.6) to the crest of the buttress and follow 3 more pitches of 3rd and 4th-class climbing to the West Summit.
The best descent option is by down-scrambling the SW Buttress to the roof described, then two to three 30m rappels will reach the bottom of the buttress.
