Road was boot packed and icy in sections, did not use any traction on road. Snowshoes were needed above 11,800 ft to the ridge, otherwise you would be postholing in places about knee deep. On ridge snow varied from sugary to soft snow, with the occassional crust in isolated areas. Ridge was a solid mix of rock and snow, with well defined cornices.
