An absolutely ideal climb. I used my snowshoes all the way to and from 12,700'. Then it was crampons. There is some post-holing going on up there, so you may use somebody else's footprints, but expect to sink farther. The snow is rotting out. The final culoir to the summit is in pretty good condition and totally snow-filled. Axe is necessary. After glissading thousands of feet, the descent only took an hour!
