Our route goes up the face on the right. But first we have to cross a jumbled crevasse field, left over from when the glacier on our route ripped free and avalanched to the base.
I hate 1:00 am starts. Cold climbing through the night, weaving through crevasses.
A sketchy snow bridge to cross on the way. But it was our only option.

The weather deteriorates when we are about at the arrow. We decide to head down. 250 m shy of the summit. It’s a bummer because I was feeling strong.
It’s snowing hard and waterfalling down the entire face above us. It buries us and our anchors in seconds.
We make eight 70 meter rappels to get back to the bergschrund.
