Nowhere near enough ice currently for the grade - fairly thin throughout and completely missing on a section of a few metres at the top of the groove, meaning a brief traverse right and a short, steep mixed step with great turf is the best line right now.

Lead this the other day, sent the whole time in spin drifts and powder raining from above, there was a lack of ice, spent my time dry tooling or fighting through waist deep powder. I went left about half way up a hard V shape crack, i think this is off route, and was the point i fell at, anyone know what i was on?
