A few inches of snow remain in the gully and microspikes worked well going up and coming down. The traverse to the hourglass and above it were mainly dry and only small sections of snow. The hourglass had dry rock on climbers left. The rope is cut to 4 strands up high so we didn‘t use it at all. Not enough slack in the line (portions are in ice for the season). Didn‘t really need the rope ascending, but it would have been good on the way down.
