Climbed Bell Cord to summit and descended south and onto/into the SE Face/couloir. Departed TH at 2am and summitted at 10am via the heavily runnelled Cord. Unfortunately left me skies here, since the route was so beat up. Variable snow throughout with pockets, ice, good cramponing - a bit of everything. From saddle to summit, minimal snow & ice on the ledges, up to a heavily corniced ridge that extended all the way down the southern route. 11am on the snow was very wet and lots of rock, ice, and roller balls were flying around. Careful to not repeat my timeline and get down well after Noon.
