A beautiful mountain with difficult weather. It was just the two of us on that day. Route finding is the challenge here, being a very active glacier. Highly crevassed, many dangerous seracs, heard three avalanches during the attempt. Normal route was blocked by serac fall at around 5300m so even though we spent the next 1h30 searching for alternatives, the immense crevasses blocked our way to the top. Adding that the snow was too slushy and the weather too hot, we deemed it was safer to descend.
