Great climb.... the overhanging powdersnow at the Bergschrund was a real challenge! The ice was great, the last 3 SL were rock with powder. What a view....

El Tigre Valderrama

As described by fellow climber Tom Fralich, the route was very interesting, with the most difficult part being crossing the rimaye, which involved a steep or overhanging ice wall of about 4-5 meters. There are other opportunities to cross the Berschgroung, but we took the hardest one. The climb is easy to protect, being the first part the best one.

Climbed with Juan Valderrama and Philippe Collet in 10 long pitches (6 hrs). Crossing the bergschrund was the crux of the climb with some hard, overhanging ice and then an awkward traverse below a snow bulge. The crux pitches on ice were really stepped out with plenty of opportunities to place protection. The last mixed pitch to the ridge was easy but a bit loose. We descended the route in 10 rappels (2 hrs).
