The Central Couloir is the prominent gash that runs directly through the East Buttress. It is generally easy going until about two thirds of the way up. Find the path of least resistance trending slightly right. Turf sticks, loose rock, and steep snow are the name of the game. Despite Rossiter calling the finish "easy snow", it's a committing position and more on the steep side of "easy."
