Disclamer: I haven't climbed this route, few people have. I think I've seen it "in" twice in the five years I've lived where I can see it every day.

It needs a prolonged spell of cold weather, plus there should be NO SUN forecast for the day you pick to try it. This is a south facing cliff with underlying dark rock. The climb starts to disintegrate very quickly if the sun comes out.


Take Nuts, cams and other assorted rock gear in addition to ice gear.
