Great read, heading up there in the next few weeks for that route.


What movement skis?


You also said you brought technical tools, and poles, but both poles are whippets...so you brought a pair of whippets and technical tools?

Movement Logic X.


Yes, two technical tools and a pair of Whippets. I climbed the route to 13,100' last April and the icefall is (or was) in tougher shape this year. I could have managed with one walking axe, but I was faster and had more fun with two tools. I have a pair of Venoms for routes like this; they don't weigh much more than walking axes, so it's an easy call for me.
