Well packed snow trail all the way up. Not much snow, but enough to feel wintery. Snow shoes help, but you can do without. The rock band under Iceberg lake is not covered with snow, we had to do a couple of easy bouldering moves to get through. Class 3 section from the notch is a little sketchy at the top - enough snow to cover loose rocks, but not always enough to hold a step. The first pitch of the section is dry, no ice on rocks. There is a well packed trail going around the technical part, people reported that it is indeed easier, but adds 20-30 min to the climb.

P.S. There is some very tempting ice on the slopes of Thor...

Pics of ice on Thor would be cool to see!
