overnight temps at around 11800ft got down to around 30 degrees, no snow or ice on the ascent. we descended down the couloir between KC and Columbia. We were able to skirt the couloir which was full of snow and we were without axes. While on the route up I saw a large group summit KC from the north and traverse over to Columbia with no technical gear so I assume the route was generally free of snow/Ice. Most of the KC Ave. was still loaded with snow.
