 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 .

Comments

Photo doesn't show whole south face - blocked by a spur coming off Ball Pass. Not too much below this except all the fatter ice.

Wolfgang Maier climbed this route at least 4 times with clients 2007, 2009 , 2010 and 2011.

Not surprised to hear that Elke - cheers!
