    Went up Ragnaroc on Saturday with BP. The direct start has formed but is narrow and delaminated. Should be good to go when cold returns. Still, don't forget your big balls. The regular first pitch takes 13cm but hit the rock twice with 16cm. Second pitch is rock only. Turned around at the second belay due to warm temps, dripping water and falling ice. A large dagger the size of a fridge fell to our feet just after rapping! Safety advice: stick to those routes that don't see the sun with the warm temps... Most other classic routes are in both sides of the notch and should be safe when the cold returns.
