Conditions on the ridge were great. It was t-shirt weather on the summit yesterday and the whole route is almost snow free. There were only two or three little small sections of snow on the ridge in the areas that don't receive much sunlight and only one section of about 10 feet where you had to be careful on the snow in an steep section. We brought our microspikes with us just in case but never used them.

P.S. This route was an awesome class 3 climb but descending the standard route sucks reminds me of a mix of Columbia and Bross.
