This route offers a fairly fat-ice crux, but the final top-out is often thin and funky.
Climb the initial slab, which is usually too thin for screws, passing left of a left-facing rock corner (which may be buried under ice) leading to the final ice curtain. Climb the curtain and shuffle left a bit to reach the top.
This is the last major ice flow toward the right side of Starbuck Central. Look for a steep slab of ice leading to 15' tall curtain spilling over near the right end of the upper overhang. This is about 25' right of Polish Roast.
Screws and slings. Use trees for top anchors.
