Description

Climb through the overhang, step left into the chimney and ascend it, around a corner into an ice-riddled, right-rising inside corner facing left. Follow the corner to the top.
The crux is getting through the overhang near the ground, but there are nice moves farther along as well.
Detractions: rounding the bend into the corner, and brush at the beginning of the corner.
Manage the rope carefully while rounding the bend above the chimney. One could start down to the left, following only the corner system and thus bringing the grade - and rope management - down substantially.

Location

30' left of the fattest ice flow, at a head-height overhang with a crack running up from its right side and a chimney rising left from its left side.

Protection

#.4 to #2 Camalots, slings, couple 13cm ice screws.
