80m, 3 pitches. This is the first major ice fall of the gorge situated on its north side. It is exposed to the sun during at least part of the day after the middle of February so an early start is advisable. Cross the river and climb easily up into a cave on the left - beware falling ice as during the heat of the day stalactites often let lose and this is a natural funnel. There is a bolted belay here. Climb up and right onto the front of the pillar and surmount this to a slight step. Here you can make another belay on a bolted stance out to the right, or you can continue up and then left to a peg belay in a cave. The last section is a thin pillar to a bolted stance at the top. From here, either abseil to the base or continue easily and gain a path with leads back to the entrance of the gorge.

First route of the trip, really good climbing, mostly nice solid ice although a bit snowy, we missed to top bolt belay so abbed off some trees 30m up and then again to the ground off ablokovs

Led first pitch and bailed after looking at the poor state too the second! First time out on ice in years, good fun all the same! Up the gorge, much more fun!

Took it in turns to lead then absail back down, a good first route. I went last at the end of the day as it was getting dark, and the ice had become quite slushy. Climbed and absailed by head torch.
