DescriptionLike its name, this is the last swallow, at least on Starbuck Right. And like its name, it's not the best part of the pot. Awkward and uninspiring, it's a line to do when nothing else is available.
The initial narrow, steep bit leads to an easy ramp, which in turn leads to the final 10' vertical ribbon. This last isn't quite tall enough to lend it grade 4 status, but if vertical ice is hard for you, it will be a problem.
Top-out is usually scruff'n'duff; at least a few saplings will take a sling and thus protect the final move.
LocationAround the right end of Starbuck Right, as the top-access path begins to head upward, at a <1m-wide ribbon of steep ice issuing from a short, blocky rock chimney. An easier start is available another 12' upslope.
