Pretty windy after along ridge and front side on the way down. Snow was easy to manage without YakTraks (spikes), but stuck to climbing on hard snow or rocks. Snow above 13,000 was from a dusting to 2 feet in VERY FEW AREAS.
Went down the east ridge and it was snowier, colder, and muddier than the top, but still manageable.
