Do not mistake this for the wavy, overhanging crack (no bolts) of Super Dave, tricky M7+, just upstream on the next rock face.
From the bottom of the canyon, climb an easier bit of ice to a great ledge at the base of a short rock face with a vertical, cracked system (and 4 bolts), then pull on small edges, a few decent pick slots, and then reach R to the hanging ice. This is the middle line of bolts on this cliff. A bolt lies tucked in just behind a bit of ice on the R. Pull on to the ice creating a short overlap/overhang. Then move up vertical ice for perhaps 20 feet to the top. Save a bit of gas for the top bit of ice. Much easier top with the hooks created by traffic. Pinkpointing probably shaves a bit of difficulty. 90 feet. Fun, fun, fun. A treat.
Oh yeah, if you are going to lead this one and are setting up from below, beware that there is a pool of water with thin ice. Peter & Lisa watched someone go in to his waist just before he hopped on to this route.
