Good ice on pitch one, second pitch is mixed 5 with little ice, third pitch is grade 3 snow, fourth pitch, the crack did not have any ice and was not in condition, the grove next to it is solid 4 with partially frozen turf, pitch five, easy snow to the top. A lot of snow on pitches three-five made it very difficult to find placements. Excellent alpine climb with awesome views!

Felt very hard and pretty scary. There was a steep vertical section. Dont think it was in a great condition. We found out after that the body of a fallen walker was found on one of the belay ledges the following summer...
