Started from Iceberg Lake before dawn despite somewhat questionable weather. Up and back down by the time the serious weather rolled in. Avoided an epic! Encountered snow, hail and rain that night at Iceberg Lake. Ditched plans on Mount Russell and bailed the next morning.
Looking at the face you'd never guess the route is so easy. Dcurless is right;route on the fresh air traverse can be tricky. I got off route there, took a twenty foot fall, got the rope stuck and burned a few hours before we got back on route.
