A lot more fresh snow on the route than when I scoped it out last week. I started at 8:00am and I wore my snowshoes to 12,700 cause the risers were nice and there was enough snow. After the warm temps this morning though I just carried them back down to treeline before donning them again. Floatation will definitely be helpful to get to and from treeline for a while longer. Ridge was straightforward, still about 60% snow but not a nuisance. Didn't use traction. Super windy, but only once felt like I might get knocked over.
