We did the second ascent of this route in full on Winter conditions in December of 1994. Multiple blizzards and cold weather for 4 days and three nights. We bivied in portaledges for all three nights. I think I read somewhere that somebody blamed the second ascentionists (us) for adding bolts to the route. I added one bolt to a belay and that was it. We did it in good style. Some new bolts have been added by attempts since then which is too bad.
This is a great, steep route with good nailing the whole way. There is one long bolt ladder.
