When formed this route is truly pure ecstasy.
Levitation at it's finest.
The first pitch at 55m is unforgettable...
We didn't climb higher so I have no info for that.
Seemed to take a solid 1.5 hours of steady uphill movement to get there.
When formed it's easy to follow the trail.
Screws, depending on conditions you can sink 22cm, 17, and stubbies
Bolted 1/2 inch anchors at the top of the 55m pitch.
Part way up 1st pitch
2/3rd the way up

You can continue up the chimney above the 1st pitch for a couple of steep, short steps, about 120m more with much snow. That's as far as I've gone. It's okay for easy mileage, but pretty anticlimatic after that wonderful first pitch.

Conditions as of 1.12.12. Very thin and likely a solo climb at this point (un-protectable).
