Dropped my rock shoe on 5th pitch so climbed with one shoe and one boot. Weather turned in, spent night 50m below the summit, still can't feel my feet!!

A very long route, and you have to carry alpine boots all the way to the summit to get off. Worth it though. Take lots of water, or a stove, it's a long day.
