Description Suggest change

Climb up the short step to a ledge and ascend the left half of a twin ice band on the rock face. It is likely these two ribbons converge in a good season.
In decent conditions, this may be an easy grade 4, but expect a bit of hollow-sounding ice along the way. There's enough glaze to place stubbies in several spots, but don't expect any bomber placements once you head up the main face. If you can find the wide crack that underlies this ice tendril (which is the rock route Aquarius), you could place 19cm screws, but don't count on it.

Location Suggest change

The left side of a double-stripe of thin ice right of Vanilla Latte, which is the first full stripe of thin ice on the rock face.
Note that this is the location of the rock route Aquarius.

Protection Suggest change

13 to 16 cm screws, a runner or two along the way.
