The West Buttress camp at 14,000 feet, viewed from a point below the Orient Express, on the way up the West Rib cutoff. The tents on the left side of the camp are staffed by the National Park Service, and typically include a rustic medical facility. The ascent to this camp is via the boot track that is visible beyond the camp. There are ice climbs on the steep ground above the boot track, on the flank of the West Buttress. The West Buttress route ascends fixed lines on a slope that is just out of the photo, on the right.
