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
The route can be top-roped fom trees above the route.
