Retreated before crux as we were unsure whether we would beat the clouds as they were rolling in from across the valley. Wise move as it seemed the hut nearly got blown away that evening!

Awesome. Quite tricky, under some fresh snow, took around 7 hours.

Moved together. Felt like crap as we left the hut, but turned into my best ever day. Superb.
