Started on the 20th after bivvying at the bottom. A night squeezed onto a very banked out death bivvy. Topping out in the dark. Great route, totally exhausting, fantastic conditions!

Well what do I say? Started off first train, broke trail to the rote fluh, bivvied (surprisingly comfortably) at the Death Bivvy, topped out around 5pm, descended to above the seracs and bivvied again then wandered down for 9am the third day. Good conditions, but lots of snow-plodding and snow-clearing on the harder pitches. What an adventure!

We enjoyed it so much we took our time - seven bivvies up, another on the descent. The greatest climb in the world.
