Ascent Trip Report

This trip didn't go well at all. Lots of water and frozen rocks. Took much longer than expected.
I'm writing this in 2015 and looking back it was very dangerous. We where there at night, my girlfriend didn't have waterproof shoes and her feet got frozen. We started climbing at 2pm so it got dark soon. Then on the way down, lots of steep boulders with ice and we couldn't see the track down, only total dark. It was windy. I ripped my safety blanket and made her waterproof socks, gave her my socks and continued barefoot in by goretex boots. The trip took 8h30 and was a bit traumatizing, but good stories and learning experience.
