About 15 feet around the corner from the big dihedral of “Strike Three” is a multi-tiered line of ice. The climb follows along the Left side of the ice.
Start on the right side of a chossy and broken Right facing corner. Climb up corner trending left to gain stance on top of feature. Once here, you have two options; continue up and trend right towards an icy right facing corner (easy but awkward and insecure) -or- go straight up and then over to the icy right facing corner (harder but a wee bit more secure). Follow icy corner/feature diagonally up and Left to another good stance. From here go up and right on good flake system to ice. Climb ice to anchors. With no ice (or if the ice has formed too far to the right) this route is significantly harder; about M7+ at the top.
NOTE: The bottom section is very chossy an needs to get cleaned. Be careful for the first 3-4 bolts. I'll get out there and get medieval on it when the weather warms up and and un-glues the frozen in chunks.
9 Quickdraws for bolts.
