A dusting of snow made some sections a little more difficult, but the most difficult parts got sunshine early on.
We missed the bypass and added 45 minutes to our climb - once you get to the first descent from the saddle adjacent to Fletcher, you follow the path continuously to the notch to drop through, you don't head up the next point.
Once you've crossed the gully, the climbing is difficult (for mortals like me at least) to regain the ridge. The rock is loose but doable. There are some sections of steep loose dirt, some that were covered in a thin layer of snow.
