This climb is to the left or just west of Sick Pup...
Climb snow covered bulged rock wall to reach short curtain pillar. After pillar ascend steep slab thinner ice to top section bulges to finish. Another free solo. Bitchiness to get to the flow but after that it got exposed climbing on solid ice. I also called this climb Tang.
East of Bilbo's Tunnel on the opposite side of this section and slightly higher where there is an obvious ramp bulge to get to this centralized ice flow. Rappel down Descent Route if you only have one 60m rope.
