Climbed the North Face today. No snowshoes needed. Trail is boot packed well to treeline. Snow above treeline is pretty thin except for drifts that are easily avoided. Snow apron below route is mostly firm snow, no sugar. Summer zigzags worked well. Route has some ice in it. Climbed technical pitch in crampons. Snow above is firm also.
