My wife and I found excellent snow conditions. The recent cool spell meant super hard snow with even a few icy spots. We only saw two others on the climb. A guide and his client that we passed before the fork. The hard snow made the steep parts easy. The rock step is super melted out with lots of loose stuff. Great route.
The hike into the climbing area is spectacular. The climb itself is gorgeous. The spines of rock create beautiful couloirs that hold great snow. This route was easy/moderate snow/ice. The mixed stuff was SHORT- 10 feets or so. Watch that cornice up top!
