Husband and I headed out to climb the north arete. Took two days to get to our base camp which was very reasonable. There was still some snow just left of the route, and a lot of talus to get to the climbing. We ended up getting rained out over night and into the morning. This looks like a very long day, but also a beautiful, sustained route and I hope to give it another try one day.
