See section description. FYI - The latest grade I read for this route was 5.9. Having climbed it, I would say that it's 5.6-7 with 5.9 variations depending on conditions with 50-60 degree alpine ice and 70 degree easy mixed

Great route, did it with camps one and two. Great alpine route if you don't fix ropes. If you fix ropes it dumbs it down a bit, but a great climb none the less.
