The keyhole route appears dry and all snow is avoidable.
Cables is soaking wet with unavoidable snow below and above the rock pitch.
Keyhole ridge is dry and awesome! GO DO IT!!!!
Kieners is drying out up high

Did you take an ice axe, or would you recommend one? I plan to climb it on Thursday and need to decide whether to go rent one or not.

an axe for the descent of the North Face. as for the keyhole, I cant say for certain because we didnt do that route but we saw folks on the summit with just shoes. We were told all the snow on the standard route is avoidable. hope this helps!
