Icebreaker Arete. Climbing near the top. 3/6/11.

Description 

Sustained and steep ice climbing. As of March 2011 the route was in WI 4+ condition. Initial pillar led to more gradual ice. Spectacular and exctiting finish on ice curtains with tricky screw placements.

Location 

Ice arete to the left of Icebreakers and Kama Bay Cakewalk (see picture below)
Descent: rap from the trees, either down the route or the chimney to the left.

Protection 

Ice screws (maybe a stubby or two for the top). A pair of 60m ropes.
