A little more difficult than predicted but very nice climbing though i think conditions could have been better.

Done to celebrate my wedding - truned into a minor epic as upper section v. icy and in white-out - think we ended up on the upper section of the Austrian Route and I got knackered as was using 'old school' wooden axe + ice dagger, - these were the days before 'proper' tools. Descent down to the Couvercle was pretty scary.
