The steep icicle of The Devil's Appendix gives a fantastic strenuous pitch followed by an equally exciting top pitch of great character, passing some amazing ice formations..
1) 6, 30m. Climb the icefall to beneath the roof and hanging icicle (pegs on the left). Launch on the the hanging icicle praying that it doesn't collapse. Climb the steep wall above to the ledge and a loose-ish blocky belay stance. The icicle can sometimes be avoided on the right if it hasn't formed enough to be climbed. .
2) 5, 60m. Climb the ice, first rightwards to a ledge, then back left into a corner (possible cramped belay). Traverse right to the far-right of the icefall and finish direct.
