About 300m up valley from Cul De Sac.
This is the companion route to WAAS. It goes up the corner to the right of WAAS into a cave then up a 60m pitch of ice that is reminiscent of the crux on WAAS, but easier.
The first ascentionists reckoned you could get the Missus and the dogs in the Ute up the first four pitches, but you’d struggle getting even the ute up the last one. Grade: Harder than losing to the Aussies. Rappel the route.
