Hey pal,

What did you think of the route in terms of difficulty? When would you personally say the best time of year to tackle the beast is? Thanks a bunch, I'm very much interested in TC!

It's conditional

The crux of the route are the runnels between the first (Hidden) couloir and the second couloir. If these are formed expect climbing up to WI 4. If the runnels are not formed then you have to take one of a couple of variations one of which can be moderately hard mixed climbing. The best time for the runnels to be well iced is March - April.
