We were lucky to have pleasant weather on summit day, although the previous week only 2 people had summitted due to bad storms. You just have to be lucky with the weather when it's your turn for summit day.
The normal route is technically easy, but much will power is needed for the duration of the expedition. The summit day is long and hard, the entry to the Canaleta is just as bad as the real thing. Keep your head down and persevere, just keep going, that's all you can do. The goal is enough to continue, as a bonus you're likely to be the highest person in the world when on the summit. Good luck to everyone...
