Yes. Climbed SW Face (Harding route) on Conness yesterday. First pitch is wet and some moist stuff around pitch 6. Snow on the approach was snow cupped and did not require crampons. Same amount of snow one would expect to see in early August of an average snow year...will post a few pictures after I load them up.

How did Conness south slope look? Thinking of going up either from Young Lakes or from the east.

West slopes? Snow was perfect to walk up in the morning. Hard but sun-cups all the way up
