Typically, dry-tool your way through fun and varied moves to a big ledge. From here, thin ice usually leads to the top. Depending on the year, there can be substantially more or less ice.
Located 30m up and right of Reflection Wall's start is a right facing, nearly vertical black inside corner.
15 bolts. And screws of course, depending on how much ice there is. Rappel from a tree at the top of the route, or walk over to the Reflection Wall rappel. Always check the integrity of the rappel anchors!!

Thanks for posting this, Dave. Mike and I worked the route out on top rope first, with Mike taking the first TR ascent. We sussed out bolt placements and considered several options and decided to place them where, in wet years, they would be covered by ice (so take screws just in case). After bolting the route, I had the pleasure of having the first lead ascent and the completion of a fun project with Mike. Great route! It'd make for a nice warm up for Dave's nearby mixed routes.
