Description:

Climb the obvious gully at the west end of the lake. P1 climb the slab from the top of the snow up to a steep section. P2: climb the steep ice to a snowy area. Left is more WI4ish right is more WI3ish. The right rock wall can be used for holds if needed. P3/4: Climb the lower angle ice to the finish.

Descent Options:

V thread your way down at the top or walk around. 70m doubles get you to the bottom from the bulge just below the easy lower angle ice to the bottom. Probably 2 70m rappels to the bottom.
