This is a wild route! Start as for Choopo's but head for the hanging pillar on the right. leave the gully and head up and right after about 30 feet and start the mixed climbing. Follow the crack/corner system till you can reach the ice M5+ with cams in the crack. Climb thin ice up to the bolt and then move out onto the pillar and make strenous moves on steep ice to the top, screws for


There is one bolt above half way up, rock gear below this is essential, small to mid sized cams. short to medium screws above

Did this route about 2 weeks ago. Apparently it is formed up more than usual. The first 20' were good rock. The rest of it was tough, yet good ice. An awesome climb, now you just have to find someone that can lead it.
