Ascent Trip Report

No snow until in the main gully around 9260msl. Started well, with a nice firm crust that usually held us up. As it got steeper, we changed from micro-spikes to crampons. But higher up (guess 400ft), it started turning to mostly powder. Better crust was sometimes found under the trees, where snowmelt had dripped down onto the slope, and created a thicker, icier top. Took our crampons off at the saddle, as the remainder was mostly melted. The scramble section was clear of snow.
