The climb was ok, good sticks and feet but quite hard to get good screws. 2-3 inches of good ice overlies bleached sun affected old ice, resulting in screws hitting air very often past half way. There was evidence of a large full path older avalanche, with debris estimated at 2m deep below the climb, and 3-4m above. The top of last pitch had a high wall of debris similar to Professors, the tree anchor was gone, and trees at base of climb were tilted 10 degrees downslope. Right hand slope on approach also slid to the ground, with the crown reaching 1m in some spots.
