Straightforward smooth shield of ice, same exit as route Goat's Beard. There is a huge rock just 4m away from the exit from which you can belay off your second or use it to abseil down.

Follow the obvious narrow gully. Start on low-angled ice ramp, then the gully narrows and short mixed steps are encountered.
