BETA PHOTO: Icess in thin conditions.

Description 

Start left of inner corner, climb up under roof, traverse left and up ice to top.

Depending on conditions this might be a pure ice-route or a mixed route. The mixed start follows good hooks up to the ice slab under the roof.

Short, but steep, technical and fun!

Location 

In the cave, start 3 feet left of Monkey Business, and use the same topout.

Protection 

The lower and upper parts might take rock-gear. The mid-slab might take screws in fat conditions. It is easy to set up a top-rope.

Any info on wether this one has been done before, lead or TR? I tried it this weekend on TR but had to take a rest at the crux. Would be interesting to hear if it has been done on lead.

I have done this on TR. Anytime I have tried, it has been too thin and or baked for pro.

I figured someone would have tried such a cool line! Very nice movements and a variety of elements on such a short pitch.

Any official name on this one? I just made a mix of the two flanking routes.

Probably not a huge deal since it rarely gets climbed. This is a rock route that gets climbed occasionally. Not classic or anything but might think about going easy if it's really thin, since Crow isn't exactly a mixed climbing area and you may get some flak.
