Yesterday (11/24) I climbed up the South Ridge of Mt Superior. I wanted to post a quick summary of conditions.
We went up the Suicide Chute, which had good cramponing to the col (10,100). One small rock step to climb over but not bad at all. Once on the ridge we found good climbing conditions staying directly on the ridge crest. Not, much cornice formation yet, and easy to navigate. We did keep crampons on the whole time while climbing through the rock steps. The Knife ridge section was really fun and provided some excitement as nobody had climbed the route since it last snowed.
We followed the normal East Ridge descent.
I would highly recommend climbing the route in winter conditions as it was a blast.
Crampons, Ice Axe, Helmet, and a small rack and rope will be needed. Trekking poles are nice for the descent.
