Summer conditions except for final gully: it has a surprising amount of snow, turning it into a class 3 scramble. The dirt around the snow is saturated with water and will suck your shoes off.

Beat me by a day. I hated that peak. I knew I was going to, but it was even worse than I thought. I was surprised to see snow in that gully - especially given the SE aspect. I ended up avoiding it by climbing around it.
