Trail is packed to the upper gate; snowshoes necessary after that. We ditched our snowshoes at the base of the first slope, and after that, it was plenty of sugar snow on scree. My buddy took a tumble on a south-facing slope near the ridgeline when a rock that had provided a good foothold going up rolled when he tried to use it again on the way back. He had some postholing along the ridge where there's serious potential for future cornices, though he crossed it and summited safely (I had to stop around 13k due to medical equipment issues).
