Here is a picture of Quandary from Saturday morning.

I know that they got snow Sat night/Sun morning, but the wind was ripping and probably kept the ridge from seeing too much accumulation. Floatation was very helpful in the trees, but unnecessary on the ridge. There was some skiable snow on the East face, but it was very unstable and we heard lots of "whumpfing" on E aspects at and above treeline.
