Check the beta photos. I don't know any more than what you can glean from those.

Trip report of first ascent, plus pix

Facebook picture album of second ascent

I've gathered that it's long - roughly 1200m of climbing over 600m of elevation. There is a pitch-by-pitch report from the second team that describes only two short 5.9 pitches and the rest were either low 5th class with possible short sections of aid. Keep in mind that the only two previous climbs were done very much "big wall" style - lots of bivys and hauling - and thus all beta is dependent on that. A single-day ascent seems totally feasible as long as a safe and expedient descent can be found...

Nuts? Cams? The original team appear to have used a bunch of pitons?
