Description Suggest change

This route has not formed up on a regular bases form the time climbers firs laid eyes on it so get it when it appears. To the right of Fang Gully there is some time a route that begins on a large rock bulge. The yellowish color of the ice give's it the name sake. The first 80' were first climbed in thin conditions and are the crux with the rest of the climb being snow and ice.
