Climbed ED Sunday, July 3, with my wife via Kilpacker & the South Slopes. Axe & Microspikes worked fairly well up the below the organ Pipes. Class 4 direct ridge variation to ED's summit was dry and fun. Met Monster5 on ED's summit. Traverse to Mt. Wilson was mostly dry...a few areas where minimally an axe is necessary to cross a few snowfields. The coxcomb crux before Mt. Wilson is dry, however. Class 4 Mt. Wilson summit pitch is dry as well. Descended the southwest couloir from Mt. Wilson back into Kilpacker and out. A few conditions pics below.
