Very windy today all the way to keyhole. Once past the keyhole, wind died down. Very little snow/ice in trough - completely avoidable. Large patches of ice in narrows, but below the route if you follow the bullseyes. No ice, snow, or water in homestretch. Overall, very good conditions for September. Just a few patches of snow and/or ice to try to avoid, which is easily doable.

In addition, we only saw two people heading down back to the TH from the time we started at 2am until the beginning of our descent at 9:45am. We were alone on the summit, which seems to be unsual for this peak from what I've read.
