DescriptionObvious: Climb the steep, fat ice flow to easier ice slabs for the last 20'. Generally, the right edge is easier than the rest. While the flow itself is wide enough for two parties to share, the top belay is not.
Note that White Line Fever is the natural extension of this flow, offering three long pitches of WI3 ice above it. Each pitch entails snow-slogging, but its alpine feel is worth the effort. For those who don't want to tackle the steep ice at the bottom, a walk around path exists to reach these upper pitches.
