Descended the west slopes after going up another ridge to the right for a minor "tour de Hunts" basin. The standard route is dry until the summit pitch which has a bit of snow left. A bit hard on the ascent but soft on the descent. We did not use any gear, but someone really uncomfortable on snow might want spikes.

How did the rest of the ridge look from hunts? Was the rest of it in similar shape? Any good pictures?

The west ridge is dry until that summit pitch area. I just added a couple pictures. You will have a somewhat steep bushwhack through a burn scar from the 2013 OxCart Fire but it isn't a big deal. Cool to see some of the little aspens regrowing.
