180m, 4 pitches. The first major ice line on the cliff when approaching from the east, near the rock climbs of Flanker's Route and Vanguard. Forms differently each winter to give routes of varying difficulty - at least V, 5 in January 2015 but can be IV, 4. Description: Climb 120m of broken slabby ground (II, bold) to a rock belay below and right of the icefall. A full 60m from here could get you to a good rock belay above the difficulties but the main ice pitch can be split with a rock belay in the cave on the right.

Roberttaylor 17 Feb, 2018 AltLd O/S IV 4 today. Avoided the thin slabs on the right (not much point doing those). First part was a bit cruddy but the ice around the pillar and after the pillar was fantastic. Really cool cave behind the pillar.

Mark Bannan ?Jan, 2001 AltLd O/S Was about IV,5 in Jan '01, but recent photos show the route looking a lot harder. Just as well it was IV back then - I sh*t myself anyway! (1st water ice IV lead).
