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.

It looks as though there would be no mixed climbing on the route with the conditions in the picture below.
