Ascent Trip ReportSnow is melting fast - route is only good for another couple weeks at most before it turns into a giant scree gully. Head straight up the main snow gully, move left near the top, once you reach the ridge head along the backside to the summit. Some small cornices but evidence that some have recently fallen so be careful while traversing under. There was some confusion about the true summit but looks like we didn't go far enough. The 'false summit' block looks to be higher which doesn't help with the confusion.
