At 8:30 this morning 6/30/2013 the snow at the base of Princess Leia was unconsolidated and thin and didn't support weight. Instead, one could enter the princess by climbing around the rotting snow on rock (or there was even a bit of solid ice on the side), but lacking rope/pro we downclimbed to what was probably the "escape" exit as described by summitpost. We traversed left on the snow below the cliffs to the left of Leia and found straightforward class 3.
