On the French Direct
Thomas leads as we have three more pitches to the top on the French Direct. The ice was amazing on the whole route, very plastic.

The angle was on average 65*, but the last pitch had a 20 ft. section of 80-85* that made the climb all the more enjoyable. The route is graded D/TD. The route is very doable if you are comfortable leading WI4.
