The route starts just to the left of the “Blue route” but begins with a traverse to the left. Then climb a 10m (WI4+) vertical section of ice (which can be coated with a thin layer of snow). After this, traverse again to the left and set up an anchor. This is on a solid ledge and the route “Kiddi” starts there, a bit further to the left. But instead of heading there traverse back to the right and then straight up a 20m (WI4+) vertical section of good blue ice. After this section there is about 30m (WI3+) of climbing with alternating ice and snow. During the first ascent a v-thread in good ice was built underneath the rock outcrop and the route rappelled on two 60m ropes. There was a large cornice of snow above (no ice) and the rock provided psychological shelter.
The name of the route is a reference to the “Blue Route” and the fact that ice had a lighter shade of blue.

The route starts to the right of the icicles that are overhanging in the middle of the sector. In the upper section it’s possible to go further to the right but it’s also possible to go for more steepness by heading left mid-route (Jobbi Dalton, other variations are possible).
The first section is vertical, followed by an incline, and then another vertical section that takes you to the top. An enjoyable and somewhat easy two-pitch route.

This route is in the left most corner of the sector. Starts with a steep icicle/pillar, about 7m in height. Followed by a snow slope that leads to protectable ice. The second pitch goes up a steep slope with snow, ice and a little bit of rock.
