If the ice is touching down, climb straight up. However generally the first 15 meters are a giant hanging dagger which needs to be circumvented on the right.
P1 (20m): Scramble up a small ramp to a sloping belay ledge with one pin and a good crack to build an anchor. Make a few thin rock moves up slab with sparse protection until you gain a good crack and ledge to traverse left. Make a few moves left onto the rock ledge which gives way to ice where you can build a belay.
P2 (10m): Head straight up some steep ice until you get to a 3 bolt sheltered belay stance on the left.
P3 (30m): Cut out right from the belay and then straight up more steep ice for 20 meters until the angle eases and you finish at a bolted belay on the left.
Descent: One 60m rappel *should* get you to the ground, always tie knots.
