4+ hrs from the car to summit which is essentially half what many parties take. Conditions were as perfect as they ever get for this route. Hard snow from the lower glacier to the summit. The bergschrund was easily crossed to the right. No evidence of anyone taking advantage of these conditions besides us for the past few days. But three large guided parties descending north glacier Athabasca. No doubt that route is in highway condition. Important to note that many predicted Skyladder never to be in good climbable condition again in August. Most glaciers in the area will be growing this year vs receding. Decent sized cornice over the col on descent, but easily avoided. Removed a very messy and ineffectual (dangerous) piton rap station on descent and hauled out. Please keep it clean out there.
