First route of the trip with one nights sleep up at the midi to acclimatise, basically the altitude completely fucked me over but still got the top.

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.

Climbed to end of difficulties - did not summit due to poor snow conditions
