Hot, sunny day, slushy snow. Once I was high up the upper gully, avalanches were very frequent all around me, had to dodge a couple of them! Large rocks and falling ice narrowly missed me a few times. Lots of hidden moats/bergshrunds everywhere on route. Had a scary 4th class downclimb on slippery rock (rope would have been nice for rappel). Very dangerous route in those conditions, I'm glad to be back in one piece! Came in via Ice Caves trail (had to wade the river due to bridge being washed out) came out via Dry Creek to the highway, then walked back to my car.

A warm, sunny spring day. Snow conditions were bad, with sluff avalanches coming down all around us, just like Beckey warned. Late spring would be better for this route.
