I found this route by accident. Thought perhaps a first ascent, but alas, was climbed by Galen Rowell decades earlier! I solo'd the NW buttress in the morning and was on top after a couple hours. Crux was negotiating one of the gendarmes (easy, exposed 5th). Descent down the standard west face gully is convenient for camps at Williamson bowl.
