couloir is in good shape in terms of snow but it was very warm

started from the car 6am, summited at 9 and was back at the car at 10:20

it was cloudy until about 8 and as soon as the sun popped out rockfall started and the snow got much slushier it was easy to kick steps but sometimes they were not super firm and slipped a little bit.

I would start very early if you are planning on doing this route this year.

I descended the standard route and there was 1-2 inches of slick snow on the trail that will probably melt in a couple days. I would bring microspikes.
