No, they were down in the car. We stayed at the Sasc Fura hut then got away for an Alpine start (along with everyone else). We intended to tick the North Ridge and return to Sasc Fura that day. We were trying to save a day by not going into Italy and having to walk back around, thus our crampons and axes were down in the car as well. We were on the mountain proper by first light but issues like (a) small route finding decisions (b) occasional delays due to other parties, and (c) being not that quick anyway meant if was after 4pm by the time we summitted. The Italian refugio isn't far down the other side but seeing the bivy hut was empty and had a good supply of blankets (although no water supply), we decided to stay up top. I had a reasonable amount of water and half a box of toasted muesli but the other boys were on rations!
