Interesting, if short, bit of ice in the broken alcove on the left edge of Starbuck Right.
Conditions on the FA were thin and hollow. Earlier in the season, this ice probably merged with the flow to the right, which is WI 2+/3-. Sticking to the corner, it is a bit steeper and more interesting; a sort of "almost-mixed" route, which handles rock gear for pro well whilst offering adequate ice for ascent.


Far left edge of Starbuck Right, the band of ice flowing along the right-facing rock corner.


When first climbed, the ice would not take screws, but there are plenty of cam placements to the left. It is likely that this is plenty fat enough for screws in good conditions.
