comment How can I stop exhaust fan vent condensation problems?
I thought about adding a drip hole to the insulated flex tube like you mention, but read that having a gap in the pipe was a bad idea. It make sense to me though.I'll give it a try. I also insulated the main vent.

Can you just climb up there and move the insulation aside? <- I tried. It goes down about a foot and a half, then I hit vapour barrier, and drywall, which would still be about a yard from where the fan drip is, and it is all dry except for the frost melting on that vent.

Thanks. You are probably right about it being the vent stack, both go into the area of the leaky fan. So, above the bathroom is a decorative gap before the roof. So, to see more, I'd have to cut into it, through the vapour barrier, and drywall. The area that is above the fan looks like this: [IMG]tinyurl.com/c3b6eab[/IMG] I see moisture on top of the insulation by the grey insulated duct, and around the PVC pipe. The only moisture I see below the insulation is drips of the ice from the vent. So, what should I do? Insulate the main vent stack??

Thanks for the reply. I'm not sure if the black pipe or the insulated one goes to the leaky bathroom fan. They both go into the area of the leaky fan. So, above the bathroom is a decorative gap before the roof. So, to figure out which of these pipes go to the fan, I'd have to cut into it, through the vapour barrier, and drywall. The area that is above the fan looks like this:
