Because of the bergschrund we began too far left, ended up following a different route which became increasingly difficult with mixed climbing towards the top following a couloir until we came to the top snow ridge and re-joined the moine route. By this time the snow was too sugary for us to carry on so we descended down the moine route.

descended as the whymper couloir was too dangerous due to rockfall. Had a huge bergschrund.
