i have all gear and even a set of loaner ice tools.. old school grivel blanc compacts with goulettes and home made leashes, but they work for alpine slopes

Breath of life....

I'm still wanting to do this route, and have not yet done it. So standing invitation: PM me or email at the above addy, and mayhaps we can set something up for the future.

Precisely WHERE are you going to climb this headwall? On the talus slope north of Devin's Kitchen?

Si.. Variation 1, I guess they're calling it. Might be fun to climb them all, though... my understanding is that they basically get progressively harder/lamer until Variation 6, which is mostly just a steep snow climb to shitty ridge traverse.
