Avoid camping between Ski Hill and 11'200. Push steadily on. It is well worth the effort. You cannot miss 11'200 camp. If you think you have missed it keep going.
The uninformed often get pinned in this region unnecessarily.
June is by far the best odds for summiting. April you might as well do a winter ascent cause it freaking COLD!!!. May is not much better but actually usually stormier than April. Late June gets freaking Hot on the lower glacier so travel at night (err twilight). This can happen in April or May too sometimes but you won't want to travel at night in April...lol

*What is "Route Beta"?
It's climber slang for information or tips on a route as in, "what's
the beta on that route?" As a service to fellow climbers we ask SuperTopo
guidebook users to post tips and updates to this website if they have relevant
information to share after a climb.
