DescriptionThe first pitch goes up a beautiful, wide, chandeliered tongue of ice to bolted anchors on the left (60 m). On the left side, the ice can be thin and undermined - better to stay to the right. WI 4-5, depending on the exact line climbed.
A short snow slog goes up to a small bowl (30 m).
The second pitch climbs a low-angle ramp of possibly thin, hollow ice to bolted anchors (up and right). 30 m, WI 3.
A longer snow slog leads up to a second bowl, where the climb forks (60 m). The left fork is easier.
Right fork: the third pitch climbs up more chandeliered ice to bolted anchors on the left. 50 m, WI 4-5.
Left fork: the third pitch climbs up a few short steps. WI 3. We did not climb this fork, so I can't comment on the protection at the top.
