Northwest ridge mostly clear of snow, with just a couple of small, easy snowfields. There is a little snow near the crux wall, but it is mostly avoidable, and not in exposed terrain. I would say the ridge is 90% summer conditions. The crux wall does look much more intimidating when first gaining the ridge, but it becomes much less so as you get closer. The technical sections of the crux wall are fairly short, and are really only moderately exposed if you stay near the orange lines. The road to the trailhead is completely snow free. I took the gulley down, and it is maybe half covered with snow. It had many loose large rocks, so if you are ok with down-climbing, I might recommend taking the ridge down as well.
