There is snow/ice in the crux pitch and belay ledge. Climbed entire route in approach shoes. Got a late start and was surprised to see another party. Be prepared for a long day.

Thanks Richard, what a fun route! I was exhausted the last bit and then so elated on the summit and then death march out!

We naively thought we would do the traverse too! Haha! My knees will never be the same after the death march.
