Observation Rock/North Face

I'm guessing a little early yet. Lower section would've taken pickets well but simul-climbed all but the last two pitches. Granular snow required 4-10 inches digging to reach usable ice but very inconsistent. Final 60 ft center right took pick and points very well. Climbing partner 1 yr post hip replacement 13.5 hrs RT.
