DescriptionHavana Nights is a long ribbon of ice that comes down only a few hundred yards to climber's right of Señor Presidente. Although Jack Roberts book mentions a WI3 approach pitch (which he says can be bypassed by skirting the left side of the climb), this pitch was not there in November of '13.
P1 started with a long pitch of WI5- up a pillar to a curtain then a slab and a belay off of rock pro on the right side(50m).
P2 involved a mixed start and then 50' of WI4 curtain followed by small steps separated by ledges to a tree belay (60m).
As we climbed this climb in November with very thin conditions, ascents later in the year can expect another pitch above and possibly below the description above. Ascents later in the year can probably leave the rock gear at home.
