The lower part, the NNW rock ridge, had a lot of loose rock. It wouldn't be a nice place to be if there would be more than one party, but from what I heard at the Diavolezza Haus, this route isn't climbed very often because of the poor rock quality.
A bit of a shame, the ice in the upper part was very nice. In fact, since the rock was so poor, we went on the ice quite low.
