A beautiful climb. But this must be a winter rute. There is a lot of loose rocks. We encounterd quite some rockfall in the waterfall pitches. Dangerous in summer if there is not a lot of snowfall and ice on rute

Great mixed route. Lower pitches were a bit thin on ice so we started to the right. There was some good ice in the middle pitches. Towards the top the snow was a bit powdery. Rather join up with the North Face route we followed the natural line to its top and then did a single abseil into the Gervasutti Couloir. We down-climbed this in darkness and walked back to the Abri Simmonds Hut feeling exhausted.
