Climbing Conditions

Guided the east ridge today and it was a nice day to be up high.

The route is in excellent shape. Some snow remains on the traverse to the black towers, but you can travel above or below it where it has melted back from the wall or lower edge. There are a few spots to fill water bottles just below the black towers on the NE side of the ridge, or on the traverse. Travel on the summit ridge was tedious, with punchy snow to thigh deep in spots and a couple small crevasses to watch out for.
The scramblers descent trail is now snow free.
