Ascent Trip Report

climbed with Tom and a Guide. spent night at climbers hostel, took bus up to the base of the climb around 11pm. Really bad weather. All parties but us and one other turned back because of electricity in the air. Ascending the summit head wall guide triggered a small avalanche that came over Tom and I. Water froze, food froze. Really difficult climb for me.
