Trail up to the basin generally clear of snow. Couloir in great shape for climbing, looks like ski season is over. Crampons were useful, its getting hard, but not icy yet. Still enough snow for an easy exit at the top that avoids rock climbing of any sort, but that will melt out soon. Descent on SW ridge very nice. Enough snow to glissade past many of the switchbacks from Blue Lakes Pass down to the lakes.
