Made it only to the top of the Loft and was turned back by seriously high winds. The couloir is fairly clear of snow until you reach the top third, where the canyon walls close in and force you to climb in area where there are several inches to several feet of snow and some ice. Again, didn't make it to the exit ramp at the top of the couloir. Crampons and axes are a must.
