Started at 7am, the snow was rock solid all the way up through treeline. Took the center gully (see picture) that bisects the jeep road up to the point where it last intersects the road. Gully snow was in great shape all the way up. Then followed the snow-covered road up to 13,100 and took the completely dry rock and talus route up to 13,800. Ran out of gas at 13,800 at noon and descended back down the gully. See second picture for a view of the route from 13,800 to the summit. The snow back down the gully stayed solid to about 11,800 at 1pm. Post-hole nightmare from there down to the junction at 10,900, then occasional post-holing in the last 3 miles to the TH.
