Late October, 2015. What the finish can look like with more snow and ice in the corner... Sugary enough to kick steps into in rock slippers, just solid enough to arm jam between the ice and rock on the right. Note the PERFECT pocket for a cam (red link) before dealing with this weirdness. This icy section was definitely the crux for us! Check out the alternate finish to the left. Funky chunky crack systems!!!
the dodgy ice section that required a funky and delicate hybrid style of jamming to make the summit


Very enticing option out on this face to the left with medium-large chunky cracks up to the top. If my partner couldn't figure out the icy corner I was REALLY keen to try this left hand variation. prolly climbs at 5.9 -10a??? Note: Will swallow up as many large cams as you're willing to haul up to 5000m :)
