This is a smear that goes up to thicker ice to the right of the right-facing corner. Start up on rock moves in a corner. Move out right onto the verglas. Half way up the ice is thick enough to swing at. There used to be a pin at the top with a sling around a 1 1/2" branch, but the pin fell out in my bare hands. The traverse to the Left of Right exit is slabby rock. This could use a couple bolts for anchors and perhaps a bolt on the traverse to exit or set up the TR?
A lot of imagination. Per Randy Slavin, a fun lead, beginning in the right-facing rock corner with natural pro (cams, nuts, hex?), a (tied-off) stubby or 2 getting onto the thin smear, then another piece of rock pro to finish.
