Abbed off at the crux. I was moving far too slow, gnarly route in great condition. My first true alpine ice route

First Alpine North face! 6 hours shrund to summit moving together for the majority of it. Probably only belayed 4 or 5 times. Felt like a long way after a 6 day ski tour!

Solar eclipse occurred on the same day, but didn't see it as the clouds came in. Visibility was 40m most of the day. Climbed from first lift. Down-climbing was a bore.

skinned up from argentiere at 6pm and started climbing about 12am. Route was in good condition apart from the summit ice field which was a nightmare of black ice! couldn't count the number of meteors i saw and i topped out just before a fantastic sunrise.... will remember this one for a long time!

Soloed all of the route apart from 1st crux where we put in two rope lengths. Went too far right after snow field post 1st crux, therefore doing another good 100m of 60 deg ice and rock plus an awesome mixed traverse on thin ice on rock. 1st Alpine North Face. Very happy.
Steve Wakeford - Lead β - 25/Apr/13 with Julian Lösche
Soloed up to top of 1st crux. Abseiled back due to lack of time.

Too slow on the way up, had to bivy on top (frostbite...) and then abseil the route the next day. Awesome route, though.

With R.K. Four hours from Hut to base snowshoeing, plus one hour to cross B'schurnd. Smashing good first half. Upper half very thin. Benighted. Unprepared bivi. Shallow frost bite. Next time: more water and do an acclimatisation route !! Great memories !!
