Myself on dougs route. I belayed behind the pillar and attempted to climb out onto it, but it was a very sunny/warm day and I judged it to be deadly and down climbed. We realized that our screws were melting out of the pillar (I pulled a 13cm screw straight out), and water was starting to rain down around us. I had placed a V-thread in ice I had chipped out at the base of the pillar and it had completely frozen in. We rapped off the V-thread and lived to climb another day.
