Climbed the east ridge of Bancroft on Saturday. Its in great shape right now, and still lots of snow. There is new webbing at the notch for the rap, and both the 4th class go around and the 5th class direct climb out of the notch are snow free. You will definitely want crampons and an ice ax, as there are several knife edges of snow that will need to be crossed. There was some ice in a few places in the class 3/4 areas, but not really all that much. Go get it before the snow melts!
