More or less straight up the guts of the south face. Heaps of harder variants with WI3+ steps at the start are possible. Generally steep at first then onto 60 degree neve ramps with some small steps, 70-80 degrees max. Climb when conditions are fat, rock gear would be nix. 2 mins access from Ball Pass easy snow descent off Turner towards Ball Gl then back right to Ball Pass. Named by Jaz Morris in 2013 on what was thought to be a FA .
