Zero snow anywhere on route. I'm not sure if I climbed the crux differently than you're suposed to, but it felt slightly harder than Dallas's crux I did the day before. I didn't carry any pro but I was able to poorly sling a large rock that would have protected a long tumble down the loose scree at the bottom, but not so much the actual crux moves.

Took Roach's variation up tea, then standard over to coffee and down coffee. Would not recommend. Go right up to Coffee first, over to tea, then back to coffee and down the way you ascended.

1-summit area
2-loose gulley below the black gulley. much more unstable than the gulley just east of coffee
