Most snow can be avoided except for a couple short stretches, rather soft. I followed a dry 'arm' to bypass most of the snowfield on the ascent. Decent glissading on the descent, snow was soft and suncupped. Summit is still coated in a thick cornice, which I postholed in. Carried spikes and axe but didn't use them, might be helpful in a couple spots. Ridge to Grays is still snowy with cornices. Ridge to Argentine is mostly dry, but Argentine's east face is holding a lot of snow, as is the road in spots. Did Mclellan also - mostly dry with some stretches of snow on the ridge.
