Climb from the col of the ordinary route is easy on broken rock, the route then fades out a bit before it kicks up and the grade increases as the climb gets higher. You move into a rock gendarmes and ridges at the top which we ended up pitching. There was no sign of fixed gear on the whole route, as for the grade a good guide would be D IV. We had pitches of VD with odd pitches of S, lots of loose rock carry a VD rack with lots of slings. A great route which finishes with you belaying off the summit cross.
