Description 

Grade, of course, "depends on conditions !" When I did it we climbed a bit more to the right than is shown in the guidebook, maybe just left of where Killer Whale goes over the "overlap / overhang". Yet even then the top had not connected with the bottom flow so there was some "free space" to muscle over.

P1 - Climb up and into the "mouth" of the Jaws and then over. I'd say 4- to 5+ depending on amount of ice.

Rap of tree(s) with 2 ropes.

Protection 

usual stuff, plus we used a Lost Arrow piton to protect the leader on the overlap.
