Miss chance, maybe, instead of cover. I’m a bot, bleepbloop. You also, most likely, get to take a pot-shot at the enemy as they come around the wall since they’ll possibly still be at least a move action away depending on how things have progressed on this side of it and ready actions are a thing.
If they didn’t want you to be a summoner going in, they’ve got a funny way of showing it. Why take it in the first place? I don’t normally like playing spellcasters, and only one of those requires being one, though overall I like the aberrant and similar concepts. They don’t have the utility that other summons give you, like Bone Devil’s ability to make the entire party fly or section off the battlefield with walls of ice.
Most apps include their own filtering systems.
Maybe go for a cover effect instead, fluffed as being in our world only partially? If they have to run around the ice, that’s pretty much perfect, as is them having to take the time climbing over it. Want to add to the discussion?
If an alienist has no familiar, this ability has no effect. It’s just a slightly crippled wizard.
You can’t engage those enemies, but as everyone notes, divide and conquer is a very viable strategy, because it cuts down on the opponent’s action economy. For example, by casting summon monster IV, she could summon a pseudonatural dire wolf.

Also, the one-level dip into Alienist lets you template all of your animals for free, which is nice. Overall, it is more powerful but it didn’t fix the key problem with the Alienist: These appendages work normally and function as if they always existed on your body. Yes, one or more will be just as protected from you as you are from them until they work their way around the wall but the one s that you left on your side of the wall have been isolated from their allies and are in -big- trouble since they’re now even more outnumbered than they would be if you had personally cast wall of ice to hedge out their allies.
