All clear. This has to be the worst route I have ever done. The rock is incredibly loose. Advice is to stay far left on the 1st steep slope. Found Bullwinkle in the parking lot.

Looks familiar...I did it in a "normal June" and thus had more snow cover to cover the annoying scree.

Thats exactly what I was thinking. I thought for sure a NW facing route in the Elks would have snow even on a low snow year, but came up empty. I felt this route was worse than Thunder Pyrmaid.
