Climbed with two other SPers between snowstorms that plagued the Blanca all of June '09. Camped at the col. The navigation through the glacier wasn't difficult, but did involved the steepest climbing of the route. The rest of the route was plodding up 50-55 degree snow slopes, with a couple moves involving some blocks of rock. We took the path up the steeper snow slope instead of directly through the rock band. We stopped at the summit ridge/plateau as we were in the clouds and there was a couple feet of fresh snow.
