Good bootpack for a couple miles. After, 0.5-1.5 ft of breaking to the Lizard/cross saddle. Windblown with some icy spots up to the base of the route. Sustained 10-20 MPH wind. The new layer of 12+ inches isn't consolidated yet and there is a reactive few inch crust. The layer below is spring like.

First pitch mostly dry with some snow in the chimney. Traverse pitch has good consolidated snow and some rock. Summit pitch is pretty snowy but the crux move is relatively drive. Used crampons/tools and rock pro. Anchors in good condition.
