My friend and I attempted a big wall on the Gargoyle back in 1983 (same line as Electric View, FA 2004).
Some words of warning: see those big black streaks on the wall? Those are avalanche paths.
Routes like the Beauty and the Beast and New Mother Nature (EEEK!) lay in avalanche paths. My partner and I saw numerous HUGE avalanches roll down those black streaks, especially New Mother Nature. Be smart, be careful!
