I'd imagine that the route faces roughly northwest. What does the avalanche forecast tell you about gullies and exit slopes on that aspect?
Why not do a buttress route? They tend to be safer choices in heavy snow conditions.

Glad to get out of there in the changing weather!
It must have been your mate we saw on the approach, didn't realise he was soloing. He got out in time!!
