This classic route forms as a thin flow just left of Last Gentleman's and is typically very thin on the first 30 meters of the first pitch. P2 eases off a bit, followed by a steeper and more sustained P3.


The route follows a thin left leaning flow left of The Last Gentleman.

P1:The first 30 meters of thin ice is followed by 30 meters of thicker ice to a good stance at 60 meters.
P2:Easier ice(WI4) for 60 meters leads to the final pitch
P3:A sustained curtain leads to some off-angle climbing to the trees 60 meters
