A spectacular route that completely forms only occasionally. If it's in, get on it! Either start at the base of a shield of ice below the route or start at the base of the free standing pillar. Climb the vertical, sustained pillar to a comfortable belay below the overhangs. The second (crux) pitch follows the line of least resistance (either right or left) around the overhangs to a long sustained pillar that leads to the top.
The Recital Hall is an amazing bowl just 100m in diameter, that can only be accessed by climbing Aquarius. Two great routes, Fearful Symmetry and Rainbow Serpent, spill into the bowl. Rainbow Serpent is around the corner to the right, and can't be seen until you are directly beneath it.
