Ace of Spades with Roger Brisson

Description 

Climb the steep headwall. Several possibilities in the end: left steep wall up to anchor, or right to several easier possibilities.

Location 

Main flow. Can't miss it. Descent depends on where you exit. There is a rapell-anchor to the left where one 30-m rapell will take you to the ground (anchor shared by Overbid). To the right two 60m-ropes or two rappells via trees to the far right of flow will take you to the ground.

Protection 

Ice screws.

There's a great mixed route variation to Ace of Spades. Climb the first step of ice then move climbers right to the heavily cracked and featured face. Move up until your back on the ice and over to the normal finish. M3-4ish

Also looks like the small buttress climbers left of lower wall of Ace of Spades could offer some cool mixed options
