 5 pitch ice, snow, and mixed route that starts off in the corner just left of the slabby rock (of the buttress to the right of Moonshine buttress,) and goes up a corner/chimney. The route can be taken up to the saddle in 4 pitches or you can take an alternate end and go right up the obvious gullies for a bit more ice/mixed fun. Bring your snowstake for getting off the sloping top. P1: 30m WI2+ to the bottom of the steep traversing bulge. You can use the chimney to lay back against. P2: 55m WI2+ with WI3 crux. Tackle the crux and move into the left gully. This takes you up to the snow slopes. P3: 60m WI2+ more blue ice up the gully until you come out to the snow slope, find some ice to belay off. P4: 60m 60 degree snow slope, may be iced up in different conditions. P5: 60+m WI2+ M3/4 Ice runnels up between mixed ground. Mostly M3 with some M4 moves. Tops out on the snow slope or build a rock belay before topping out.
