Good conditions on the climb, a couple of moats are forming, but no rock steps yet. Top out was very soft at ~11. If you are debating bringing a rope and rack, only the upper quarter of the climb is really worth it to protect the move around the cornice and possibly the steep snow if you're worried; a set of nuts and maybe a snow picket or 2 for the belay, plus a #1 or 2 cam to protect the follower after you're on top (we topped out right side). Even then, if you've done something like Skywalker or Dragon Tail, you'll get by fine without the pro.
