Nice.
It definitely looks like classic mountain climbing. Thanks for posting it.

Yeah, classic. All a bit of a blur now, but I've just read my partner's detailed journal entry from then, and it was quite the epic - made all the easier by lack of visibility. As he said about the summit, "What a lousy view. Never have I gone to so much trouble to see so little"

Figured it needed to be written up since there is nothing else about the face online.

Well, I guess it serves one right if they went up there for the view...

Anyway, thanks for the addition, and the story behind it is great.

One thing about the summit - we found both badly needed (unopened) abandoned granola bars and thousands of lady bugs!
