Made it up to the shoulder yesterday (12,700ft) before I was turned around by 50-70mph wind gusts. Variable snow from supportive,breakable crust to powder 2-4in deep. The tundra as previous poster stated is wind blown/icy and thin in spots. Was able to make to rocky landmark on descent thanks to the wind on snowboard. SM glacier is also wind blown hard packed/icy.
