There is now a route from the basin up to the ridge free of snow (pic 1). Unfortunately, it's not a particularly stable route. Lots of gravel.

Still some snow on the west ridge itself. Most is next to the route. There's only one place it's on the route. (Pic 2, taken from Pacific, shows location two-thirds of the way up the ridge. Pic 3 is close-up, looking back.) Can be avoided by stepping in the narrow gap between the ridge crest and the snow, temporarily shifting from climber's left of crest to climber's right of crest.

Atlantic to Pacific is clear.
