Also, would we be roped/do I need a harness?
I'll look into the options for travel and crampon rental. I don't think I can really afford to buy them at the moment
North ridge is in my opinion a walk up while the east ridge is a scramble ... So easier than the east ridge for sure but i think it would be a bad idea to drag you up the east ridge if you ain't used to winter
Won't be too expensive to rent them probably ...
Harness is needed but i might have a second one if you have tiny legs lol
but you probably will be packed too hard so will be too tight though i might be able to borrow a second one ... Best is to rope up in winter though i would do it solo if i don't find a partner ...
