excellent rock quality, steep with holds all over the place... quite a though crux pitch (or maybe we got it all wrong, quite a number of pitons though, so we were not the first....)

Divine route! Some choice of route in places, just keep heading roughly straight up following best holds. And what holds! Impressively steep pitch after pitch. Definitely rope up for first part of the descent crossing a gap and descending to first abseil ring. The german topo we were following then seemed to be wrong in respect of the abseils before the col. Big faint red arrows assist. Remember to cross col to descent gully. Some tricky downclimbing in gully - we may have missed an abseil. Hut closed but nice bench for a wee rest. We walked up from the valley did route & walked down same day. Phew!

Thought the whole thing was brilliant, including the walk to the hut.

We added an excellent direct pitch about halfway up. A bit harder?

Walked up, dumped bivi gear and started at 1 pm. One fall due to wandering off-route on to loose rock and generally hampered by trying to climb V/VI on Direct in big boots. Hit (literally) by electric storm on top, heavy hail/snow on descent abseils. Lost glasses, got down to hut in dark.
