The route was exactly as I expected it would be and we had good beta and studied the route. Little things added up and it took a little longer than expected. The route had lots of running water on some of the lower pitches that we planned on soloing but belayed instead. Snow was also on parts of the route, which we had to bypass. Fist time climbing a long alpine route with this partner, took a while to get in a grove. Some minor route finding difficulties with the last portion in the dark. Decending in the dark also added to the time also, it probably took twice a long as it would have had it been light. It was a fun climb, and enjoyable, except for the hike out.
