Bob, I just sent you an email. I've looked down at that cornice from the top of the Super Buttress and thought it looked way too dangerous to squeeze around. That was in May a few years ago. From the traverse ledge on this trip however, it looked much more doable. There isn't any way to get around the steep snow, but right now there isn't more than 80' of it to climb (if you stuck to the high side). There is definitely a non technical but bold route to the summit that way.
