AA Buttress approach slopes

Supportive crust under 20cms of foot pen on the walk up to the AA Buttress on north facing slope. We rappelled the route to avoid the walk.off on the aspect that had a skier accidental ten days ago. We took the most conservative line possible against the rocks on the way up but after spending the day in the snow felt confident walking down the side of an easier line on a more open slope on descent. Left the avy gear at the base of the climbing on the way up. Fun mixed route

Weather conditions were: Warm.
