Really liked the route, but we came up less then a hundred feet short of the summit block. Just ran out of time, played it safe, and retreated. Were I to do it again, knowing the descent, I'd of gone for it.
We tried last year July 4th, heavy snow year, there was no snow bridge and we couldn't climb it. This year with super low snow fall, rocks are more exposed, and we were able to pass the bergshrund. Rest of it are a few good pitches with lots of loose class 3. But it was a good 14er, only four more to go.
