This is a newer route that has been forming for the past couple of years. The water flow on top of the cliff has been changed due to a new house, and the water that use to go to Banana, now seems to be flowing to this route. Homeland Insecurity is directly to the right of Main Flow. I would say the last pitch is the best and offers a fun alternative to the third pitch of Main Flow. From the top of P2 of Main Flow you can walk to P3 of Homeland Insecurity.
The first two pitches don't have a lot of ice on them and can (most likely) require some dry tooling and bush whacking.
There are trees slung with rap rings on the route. You will need to do a double rope rappel or rap on Main Flow. The rings at the top are located pretty far back.
Directly to the right of Main Flow. The third pitch can be reached by climbing the first two pitches of main flow and traversing across a ledge.
Standard Ice Rack, maybe some rock gear for the first two pitches.

Actually this route and The Evil Twin came in a couple of times in the late 80ís early 90ís and saw numerous ascents by locals. Iím not convinced this rare appearance has anything to do with new home construction but rather snow and ice that have loaded on different aspects.
