Looking forward to the details on this route

Zero fat, Zero latitude and Zero temps. From the hut, the climb ascends low angled rock ribs and scree to the glacier. Route generally trends up and left to Picos Jarrin, a rocky outcrop low along the faint ridge line which leads up and right (westish). Hence follows rightward slogging. There is usually an engaging crevasse/cretan maze ~100m below the summit. 5-8 hrs generally. Once, I got uber lost in fog and found a pair of mini-skis in some moraine, strange place.
