 Details

Snowy in the loft couloir, especially at the top. I did not summit due to lack of sleep causing me to burn out midway up the couloir but 2 of my group did with just poles and microspikes. (Edit: they exited straight out the top of the couloir, did not follow the loft route, staying on route is snowy but probably pretty doable without crampons) That said, an ice axe is highly recommended, especially for the descent for glissading the steep stuff. Actual snow conditions are not significantly different from those pictured in the previous Meeker conditions report.

Cheers, I appreciate the report. We went up the loft today and descended through the iron gates. Conditions were just as you said: very handy beta indeed!
