Got on this after Deep Throat, so that I could try and lead a tech 6 route. Attempted to lead the corner, but really wasnt up for it. Got benighted after starting the route at 4ish. Topped out at 7ish. Pretty bad hooks up the corner.

I lead P1, Ross, P2. Very few gear, which is hard-gained, due to powder cover. The amount of ice is limited. Traverse to get established to the chimney was the crux with a poor runner. The main chimney section (15m?) had no gear, though there was good gear before and after.

I am a bit puzzled by the previous comment, the line after the corner is very obvious and gives harder climbing. Take a long sling to lasso the chockstone on this pitch or be prepared for a scary run out.

Nice first pitch but not much of a line beyond the corner.
