Ascent Trip Report

From the Torino Hut. 20 mins to reach the base of the route on the east face. No snow once on the route. A decent snow covering might make the climb more enjoyable.

As it was it was a scramble on loose ground. Graded at PD we did not feel the need to rope up. There were a few places with short exposed moves but otherwise it was straightfoward.

Nice views from the summit. Returned the same way though the west face (AD-) might have gone.
