The 80 degree section is only about 5m long and the rest is felt easy angled. We climbed the Migot Spur first and then descended the normal route to the foot of the gully. You can exit to the right on to the normal route after 6 or so pitches which avoids the slog up the snow slopes to the summit.

Before the crux 2 pitches, I took my worst alpine fall for 15 metres due to carelessness... It was only stopped as the rope somehow caught the rock corner, otherwise it would have been longer by another few metres. Miraculously I was almost unscathed apart from a bit of bruises, while Thibault guessed it would be a helicopter job. I lost an axe as well, as the lanyard clipped to it self-undid. I completed the pitch and we carried on to the next 2 crux pitches - Thibault lead the first one, and I did the second, with the second climbing with only 1 axe. Neither of us fell and we made it to the top (using the standard route after the crux sections).
