Description [Edit]

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.

Protection [Edit]

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