DescriptionA prominent ice-fall located to the left of the Devil's Kitchen and the Curtain. It can be climbed in one long pitch, but is often split into two, belaying on a large ledge below the second steep section.
P1. Some easy angle ice gradually increases to a short near-vertical section, then lays back to a sloping ledge below a second steepening. A large ice-cave often forms at the belay.
P2. Continue direct up the ice fall on the right, slightly more sustained that P1.
P2a. Alternatively, in thin conditions an escape can be made up the mixed V-groove to the left, significantly easier.
The route and the variation are both equally enjoyable. The belay at the top is most likely in frozen turf, so make sure you remembered the warthogs!
