Overall rock quality is good, the tool placements are positive, and it takes gear well. It can be drytooled all the way if there is no ice.
The first attempt of this route was a week earlier, when it had considerably more ice. Unfortunately on that day we chose to climb Reflection Wall first, and what began as a cloudy day turned into intense sun, so the route began deteriorating fast. I had made it up about 50' to a decent ledge when the decision was made to bail. It turned out to be a good one because I was still untying from the rope when a big ice curtain from the top of the wall let loose, crashing onto the ledge I had vacated less than 5 minutes earlier!
