We just did the right couloir on North Peak (10-16-12). Conditions were pretty much what Deb reported. It was possible to bypass the bergschrund on the right, but we easily climbed directly up it. The first 2/3 of the couloir was neve, and the last 1/3 was mostly porous ice covered with a few inches of recent snow. It was my partner's first couloir climb, and she loved it.
