Trail clear of snow most of the way. Snowfield was very hard in early a.m., so avoided it by climbing class 3/4 rock to climber‘s left. Some very icy snow on the ledge, ice ax & crampons or microspikes/yaktrax advised. On descent, snowfield had softened slightly on top but still icy and rock hard underneath, used crampons for about 1/2 of snowfield (past the steepest rock), then downclimbed on rock the remainder of the way.

The ice on the apron of the loft was flowing water just 6 days prior, crazy to see it formed up again.
