We climbed the Bell Cord and skied the Southwest Face on Saturday. Bell cord was heavily runnelled and somewhat of a chuting gallery (snowmelt freeing up loose rock). Best to get up it by 8:00 AM. The southwest face couloir was smooth, but still frozen when we skied it at 9 AM or so. Some debris at the bottom, but overall in great condition.
