Camp I

October 12th, Pat, Joey an I, started up to leave a cache of gear at camp I, with the intention on moving up for the climb the following day.

we followed our previous route up to the glacier, at which pointpoint we roped up for the crossing.unfortunately, the weather had changed, and the morning sunshine was followed by afternoon snow. The fresh snow fall meant that we could not see any crevasses on the glacier, so we had to take more care than was probably necessary since this was a fairly inactive glacier.

After crossing the glacier we had to navigate the berscrund to get onto the slope above.

We left a couple of fixed ropes to make the following days ascent easier. We then continued up the face, but ran out of time. We left our gear about halfway up the face, short of our goal at the col.
