Tough conditions... great ambiance..  Sucess!

The crux was getting on the main ridge. Very hard condition because of the wind.. At some point we took shelter in our bivac sack... Great views....

Turned around at 5350m due to avalanche, lots of snow. Didn't even begin the fun part. Quite boring in the beginning.

Made the climb late June of '08. Reached the 'schrund near the summit pyramid at sunrise with another party, who turned back. Managed to make it across the 'schrund only to be turned back by a crevasse and rapidly softening snow just over a pitch later. Such is life. Agreed that the W. Face looks more interesting.

Mildly amusing  Sucess!

We slogged up the normal route from below moraine camp in a half a day. The top snow/ice pitch was fun, the rest was a slog. The most amusing part of our trip was my loosing my headlamp down a crevasse. The direct route looked more interesting, I wish we had done that…
