Went up the standard East Ridge route, its clear with the exception of a 10-15ft patch of snow that can easily be crossed or skirted around. Trail is in good shape and its normal rocky self near the top.
Descended Cristo, as a ski/snow climb it is OUT. Only a few hundred feet of continuous snow left at the bottom, otherwise all dirt and rock. Descended the ridge just West of the gully, it\\\'s steep by footing is decent.
