Ascent Trip Report

Turned around from just above 6000m due to extreme exhaustion. The mountain was in totally icy-conditions, cramponing was hard on the ankles. Started early at 10:40 pm from the Carrell hut. It would have been wiser to set-up camp on the Stubl glacier a little higher up, which would have saved 2 hours and increased the summit chances. The "El Coredor" on the normal route has not been climbed for a while now due to extreme rock fall conditions, due to climate change.
