Ascent Trip Report

Liam's:

Great trip, first day 1500m of hiking, climbing, and skiing, just to get to the hut. Then woke up at 3am to a beautiful day. Nice glacier terrain, then a good mixed snow ice rock climb up Festijoch. Got to be the first person to ski down the other side of the ridge while everyone else went down in crampons. Then another slog up more glacier and steep icy slopes to the summit approach. Summit was spectacular and a nice ski down only to have to climb down Festijoch in much snow. Was way later than expected so we stayed another night at the hut. Amazing trip but stay tuned because Mont Blanc is next.
