Crescent Moon Couloir on Round Top

Does anyone know what this thing looks like right now? Is it skiable? Is that wishful thinking?

I was there on Sunday - did not climb it but looked down from the top into both branches. It's filled, but the snow is very unconsolidated and there's crust under it. We climbed a snow gully on the nearby Sisters that had similar snow and a similar angle - it didn't slide but I felt nervous. I'd say the couloir is risky. Then again, maybe the warm weather this week has bonded the snow. Be safe.

I also wonder what the winds will do to the snow in there...

Has anyone climbed Crescent Moon lately? What are the snow conditions?

Same question a month later:
Has anyone climbed Crescent Moon lately? What are the snow conditions?
