Overhanging mixed start followed by icicle higher up. Route to the right of unknown 3.5. Found out at the end of the day the picks on my axes were not attached properly which made it tougher as they were pivoting slightly when I put weight on them :-)

Realised afterwards the picks on my axes weren't bolted on properly. Made it harder :-)

I think the difficulty is very much conditions dependent. The icicle had touched down, so I think hard WI4. Steep and fun though.
