I struggled leading the rock section (completely dry)- when I finally got past the last bolt over thin ice to curtain, was a relief- nice and wet climb to the anchor.

Very fiddly with tool placements below the smear. It was run out for me from the second bolt to getting in a stumpy screw. Sketched out a little but calmed more when the second stumpy went in and the ice became fatter.
