Trail is a healthy variety of dry, wet, muddy, and packed snow, but clear enough that you don't need snowshoes. The climb is completely dry. Loose as advertised, and the gear for the first half of the first pitch is sketchy, but otherwise I thought it was a really fun climb! To get off, rapped from top anchors, scrambled down the middle scree pitch, then rapped the first pitch all the way to the ground with a 70m. Wouldn't bring two ropes to rappel, seems too risky that the rope will get stuck and the 'death scree really isn't that bad if you're careful.
