Other than the glacier, the whole route is dry (and the walk in certainly is). Have fun up there...

After summiting and a few forehead slaps, we descended the right alley... It's great up there right now, if you can tolerate all the loose stuff... I'd think a June climb would be the most enjoyable though...

I walked out from Ediza in the dark. Very easy trail with a headlamp... there is the turnoff after Olaine Lake and two between Shadow and Ediza, but they are signed and pretty easy to follow.
