Beautiful route! The ice forms some interesting and pretty unique three dimensional structures. The first 30 feet or so are vertical with some slightly overhanging moves once you're up the approach ramp and actually on the route. Many opportunities to hook. A good hands-free rest can be found about half-way up the route. Mercifully ramps out at the top.
Located in the Ice Palace area. Can be reached via the North or South Loop trails. A few hundred meters south (right, looking at the cliff) of 10% Real. Just to the left of Remember the Day. Rap station on live tree at top.
Screws. Pro is generally not tough to find. Trickier where the ice is fully featured (near the bottom).
