There was a fun climbing pitch from last year, in the video below, that sticks to my memory. The ice was pretty good in the corner below Kt, pictured above, but with long skis- the overhanging rock on the side was liable to push you off.
The fun part was that I found myself stemming-with my back pushing against the rock, and ice tools and skis out climbers left. First and only time I've ever done that I think. This pitch was nice because it was right at that level of an engaging but relatively comfortable solo. The longer crux was above us, and I wish we'd have gotten out a rope for a belay.!
