Como approach sucks but not as bad as it's hyped up to be. Wet on road in lots of spots, some creek crossings, all rock crossing-able. Rained Fri 5-8, dry all day Saturday. Hourglass gushing water and loose especially up high (anything new?). Traverse was dry when we got up there. Terrifying but incredible. Stay on Ellingwood cairns (yes, ridge ALL the way to the face route on descent) or you're gonna have a bad time. Traverse had ~15 people all day, party on Blanca, on Ellingwood, and at Como.
