Gonna call it a DNF but climbed to the end of the difficulties which seems to be a fairly common turnaround. Don't really feel like we finished the route in the truest sense of the word though. Scrappy mixed with lots of unconsolidated powder higher up. Thin conditions made for some unusually cerebral ice climbing with a few physical undercut sections and the occasional patch of useless cruddy snow. Crossing the schrund is very spicy at the moment.
