This is the line that i assume Swiss Virgins goes. It is basically the easiest line with the best ice.

That is basically the line climbed by Mark Evans and Ruari MacFarlane this week

Not in 2020 anyway - the line in the big corner,marked as swiss virgins in the book ('5') was much fatter and more obvious, and understood by several parties who visited the areas as swiss vrgins. Though of course this may be due to the guidebook.
