Went up the right side of NE Face route- got into a challenging crack close to the ridgeline, then traversed left and back onto route. Descended down south ridge near dark, made the mistake of rapping the full east face in the dark. 12 raps later we were back near the Pass.
My first alpine climb. Almost turned into an epic due to route finding problems. The route was suppose to be 5.6 but i pulled a couple of 5.10 pitches. Pretty crazy since at the time i was only leading 5.7. First ascent, or off route? hehehe
