As of 7/20/11 the Northeast ridge was in good condition. Water still running fairly high at the low creek you have to ford around 10,700, but there are ways to pick across. Little snow (50 meter traverse) at the foot of the North face around 11,500 but not enough to warrant axe or crampons. Northeast ridge otherwise 98% dry to summit, so DO NOT burden yourself with the extra weight of axe or crampons - trust me.

That being said, rock is loose and terrain is unforgiving with lots of potential for fatal falls even on class 2/3 stuff up high. Do not take this mountain lightly.
