Not much ice left ...

... in this poor northface.

Not many years left, to do this one I guess :-(

Yeah, it is sad. Still, I am thinking next late June/early July. I wonder what it looks like in October? Probably demanding, hard ice, but an ugly melted out section down low.

Most of the classical northface-iceroutes in the Alps are already done best in spring.
I think there won´t be any ice left in the lower half of this face in Oktober.
