Absolutely recommendable climb. For some years now August is slightly unstable weatherwise. The last four rope lengths were icy and well used. Not so crouded though as supposed to be July. Took some 4:15 hours altogther. Best to start early in the morning and be one of the first on the wall because of ice fall. Avalanche danger some 100m. before the pass to camp one. Best to cross that area in the morning although this costs one extra day returning. Take enough films because it's very beautiful.
