We carried all our gear with us so as not to have to go back to Red Tit hut, but rather continue down to Lake Lovely water. Made for a long day. Numerous rappels on the descent. Glad we were well equipped.
Climbed the North Face route with John and Anita in AD+ condition. A very nice route but broken rock from ridge to summit, descent was a nightmare as the couloir lacked sufficient ice and the rock was very loose. Trundled large boulders down to clear route. Left new anchors where required on the descent.
