Climb the tiny corner to its top, make difficult moves up and right (crux) to better pick placements, using a right-rising microramp and a horizontal or two, weaving upward toward a narrow tongue of ice coming down from the top.
In fat years, this face might ice up considerably more than it was when we top-roped it. Much of the work here is dry-tooling or nearly-so.
At a 2-meter tall, tiny corner facing left about 6m left of Quaerite and 4m right of Fox Lair.
We top-roped this route. While a few cracks might take pins, it would probably not be a safe line to lead w/o a bolt or two.

Mike Prince, Tom Lane, & I went up here late Dec. 2012. All of Square Falls was coated with a thin layer of ice, so while pro would've been impossible, the climbing was pretty easy. Probably WI 4- "X".
The thaw coming this week may mess things up, but with the abundant snowcover, there's a good chance all will heal if we don't get too much rain and return to cold temps quickly.
