I rappelled and traversed south to the snow bridge I studied from the ridge. I quickly ran out of quality ice to place screws and had to run out the traverse in slush and snow. Once I reached the bergshrund, it did not offer any ice no matter how deep I searched, it was all snow and loose ice in July, 2007. I used my alpine ax for directional pro and crossed the snow bridge. Once on the other side of the bergshrund it is relatively safe to belay the 2nd.
