That's because the route isn't in! You have to wait for some climbs to come into prime conditions for years, if not decades, something lost on rock climbers come ice climbers. I did this first time in the late '80s/early '90s when it was phat. Dec 4, 2014

Second step of first pitch. Usually the steepest and most strenuous part of route, though plenty of gear. Nov 7, 2013
