Near perfect conditions and nobody else around. My second attempt, on the first I missed the traverse around Pfulwe in the dark and on the second timed it so I could follow the traverse but then ran out of time at 5.5 hours at 10:30 around 3900 metres - halfway up the rock band - and turned back. For an Alpine beginner the height is not so much the issue, it is the length at height. And that bloody Pfulwe traverse (the key is to turn right almost immediately once over the pass then drop slightly and contour around then up slightly to a shelf on the side of Pfulwe at the same height as the pass).

Great Route, best of the holiday.
Though long approach, had to take an alternate line due to heavy ice formations.

Left skis at the foot of the snow couloir 200m below the summit. Did the nice rock/snow scramble to the top roped together with slings for pro.
