GroundswellLoneliness  Sucess!


Climbed with partner Jon. Tons of climbers on first rocky camp. Next day went to Argentino camp and found it empty. Summited the next day with only 1 party in front of us. Went straight up instead of the ridge. Alone at summit! Found wallet belonging to Swiss person. Took back to our hostel and gave to manager to return to swiss embassy. nice to have peace and quiet for once.

We pushed so hard for hours, then beat the stupid sun to the top by almost an hour, its a little shorter climb than we thought. nice place and some nice steeps.

It was surprisingly technical for such a popular route. The bergschrund crossing involves making a move out of a snow hole with near-vertical walls with a potenetially nasty fall into the schrund (two ice tools help a lot, esp. for the leader), and the final 200-meter face is pretty sustained 45-50 degree snow/ice climbing, again two tools help a lot, although it can be done with just one.
