  Drop straight down (east) from the Student Bluffs (not by the poled route) into the narrow gorge. This line is on the true left at a sharp bend. Thin ice smears over rock, but not too steep. There may be potential for more routes in this area. Grid ref 343102.

  1. This route is deep in the Whangaehu valley, across the gorge from the hut on bluffs at the base of Ringatoto. The top of the route is visible from the hut. Two pitches of steep ice.
