|The Grin||VI 7|
|80m, 2 pitches. A prominent hanging icicle to the left of The Smirk. 80m.
1. 40m Go up an ice bulge in the right corner, then traverse left under a small roof to gain the hanging icicle. Move up and enter a thin icy groove to the left of a large flake. Make a tricky step right at the top of the groove onto a good foothold on the blank face. Move up and right onto thin finishing icicles to gain an open chimney fault. Move up 10m over a steep turfy bulge to a large ledge beneath a second icy corner.
2. 40m Climb the prominent icy corner and continue to finish up the snow gully for 30m as for The Smirk|
