Note: conditions this time of year fluctuate drastically on an hourly basis. Monitoring weather a few days in advance is advised.
Descended Pyramid std route around 6PM yesterday. Snow was negligible and route was 95% dry. The 5% that had snow was easily avoided or stepped over.
I‘m guessing there‘s a couple more inches of slushy snow above 13K‘ now and a few more inches are likely tonight. The scrambly part of the route sees sun early though so a warm day or two this week might melt most of it off. Traction is probably a good idea, depending on ability, unless we get a few days in a row of sun. Hard to tell during this time of year.
We ascended via a ridge run from W Maroon Pass. Conditions were dry on both sides of the ridge until 13631, where 0-2 inches of melting snow clung to WNW aspects. Abe said he's doing a TR.
