We left our snowhole below the Castle Ridge area too late at 9:30am because the alarm didn't go off and got the base of the route by 11am and got back 4:15am. was getting dark by the time we where half way up, Couldn't find the "Final steep wall" pitch in the guidebook ended up doing a pitch in the wrong direction in the dark, eventually found it but decided we should make a retreat duty to time and we are exhausted. Amazing day and night out though. was only my second winter trip out but learnt many lessons. Want another go at it.
