We climbed easily over the Bergschrund, but it was melting fast. May seems like the month that this summit is easiest, although there are more difficult, climbing approaches later in the season.
The road is being blasted for future logging- we had to wait 4 hours to access the TH. Woss Forestry Office may have more info. The good news is they have extended the road so, once clear of loggers, this should provide a new and higher TH.
