Out of the blue, after i met two north americans, i invited them and they said okay! We went up there and summited easily. Gavin (SPer inday) and Danny got to the summit before me around 10 minutes.

I did a direct route from the refuge, a straight line up. At the summit we met a funny group of snapish people, nice and fun talk. Stayed up there for 50 minutues but no views at all...
