I wish it had only been four years since we climbed that route but I think it was actually 2003. We had not seen it formed before that. If I remember correctly, Chris and I made an attempt in mixed conditions but could not make it go. Ryan and I went back a couple of weeks later and found much more ice. We call that route The Miscreant and have no knowledge of a prior ascent, but who knows. I'll attach a couple of pix. I have no excuse for the poor photo quality or for the one-piece suit. It was already old then but I still have it. Might be time to dig it out and toss it. Cheers.
