|Approach via greeley pond trail, then at the sign for the Mt Osceola summit trail take a right and follow the bootpack trending uphill. The ice will be located up and to the right on the obvious crag. Some post-holing may be required to reach the base.|

This is in pretty great shape (1/10/17)!
I only followed it once about 12 years ago and it was definitely not in (no ice first 20-30 feet)...
Today I got to lead it. It got a little squirrelly in spots (when it gets tight don't face right) but otherwise was super fun. 5- is accurate as there are pretty good rests between the techy bits but you definitely notice the techy bits.
Get it while it is so good! Video from the day:
