No snowshoes or skis needed this week on ascent. Melting out fast. Recent dust storms left lots of dirt on the slopes, will speed melt considerably. Started at 11 and snow firm all the way to summit via SW Ridge. Crampons optional, axe essential. Short sections of steep snow and some 4th class rock this time of year on that route. Moderate postholing on the upper slopes via standard route (Lavender Col) on descent. Left summit at 2:00 and down by 3:00.
