Great weather. Great views. Abbed off the summit to avoid busy/tricky down climb.

Hard snow up and no snow with bare ice up last section to the shoulder. lots of ice screws used. Quickly lead up 'crux' wall(3b) in crampons on shoulder and belayed Geoff and Ed up. Lots of traffic. Moved along ridge to summit and then abb'd on tat off ridge back down the way we climbed. 2 abbs to traverse across to 'ordinary' route dissent. not much snow on dissent route ether. 3512m (Summit) NE Ridge (I) AD (guide book)

Started up the steep face (good fun) and joined the ridge at the demi-lune. Stopped just shy of the final summit.

Did the right hand ridge last year so this year opted for the left. Much nicer route, less busy. Demi lune is a great feature, very photogenic. Descended down the normal route but abseiled off the shoulder to avoid the crowds on the lower ridge. Great day out with my buddy for his first alpine climb

Good climbing, with a lovely 'half-moon' snow crest. Done as the first half of E-W traverse. Recommended as a fine alternative to the crowded NW Ridge.

Beautiful day out - we were abseiled over by a guided party, which was interesting to say the least. Not too crowded on top - walked back down to the valley rather than taking the lift.
