OB Couloir is full right now. Snow layers were bonding well but beware of upcoming wet slides if the current heating continues. Lots of snow. The confines of the couloir get a limited amount of sunhit and we found stable conditions to the top. Again, with lots of snow. There‘s snow coverage from the top of OB to the summit of Kit Carson and we used crampons to the top.

Thanks for the report--headed up there tomorrow! Are the photos on the ”under construction” route description from this trip?

Yup, with the exception of the first two of shots used in the route description, the rest of the pics were taken last Friday (5/17)
