P1 - WI3: Keep between the left end of the ice and the farthest left exposed rock section in the ice. Move diagonally right up the ice. Make screw anchor just before the steep section leading up to the cave or climb it and anchor in the cave off slings (supposedly also bolts).

P2 - WI3+ Climb up just left of the cave on some exposed and rather steep ice. After reaching top it mellows out quickly. Create a natural anchor.

Descent: Walk off to the left


Start on the far left of the Main wall.


Standard ice screw rack and some slings for cave and natural anchor at top
