The freeze overnight was weak and the snow is awful. I found numerous spots of punch crust with bottomless facets below. I turned around after about 3 miles since it had taken me hours to get that far with the poor conditions. There's also significant avalanche debris still piled up in the gulch near 10,800 feet that was a pain to climb through. I'd perhaps be more inclined to take the full ridge next time.
