This route description is totally out of date. The Giglione hut
does not exist any more, the lower rocky section of the route
collapsed in 1997. The only way to reach the spur is by the
Gussfeld couloir (exposed to serac falls).
"So I was sitting in my cubicle today, and I realized, ever since I started working, every single day of my life has been worse than the day before it. So that means that every single day that you see me, that's on the worst day of my life."
