Via Burns Gulch. Road dry to just above treeline.
N aspects: unconsolidated powder up to a few ft. Some small base level avies. Quite a bit of postholing under the face. Scoped out a couple nice lines on the N face and the ridge/pt to the W. Needs more time.
NE ridge: deep powder to 3 ft up to the saddle, ridge is mix of firm snow, optional scramble, or thin powder over talus.
Jones Mtn S ridge: firm snow near the ridge and mostly talus.
Jones W/SW aspect: thin easy to moderate couloirs in, 600 ft with connectable firm snowfields another few hundred. Nice and firm. Punched up to a couple inches at most.
