Found start of route and climbed 3-4 pitches, pretty hard climbing, moved too slow for such a long route so backed off. Climbed the Classic version soon after which is awesome :)
First alpine route, majorly underestimated the length, climbed in a 3 so too slow. Got to the top at sunset, epic night descent with 1 headtorch between us and a badly shredded rope. Felix nearly slid into a crevasse early following morning and hobbled back to the cablecar with busted ankle. Over 24 hours on the mountain...many lessons to be learnt!
