ACCESS

From the car park cross fields to reach the base of the climb.

ROUTE

Climb the 75°/80° base wall direct to the first steep and overhanging drip 90°/95°. where this peters out beneath steeper terrain traverse right across cauliflowers to belay on ice (Belay 1, 35m). From the belay climb obliquely left past a series of protruding stalactite ledges (85° sections) to exit by climbing past some small ice curtains (Belay 2 on trees, 35m).

DESCENT

One 60m abseil off tree.

GEAR

Full ice climbing rack.
