Took all the shortcuts on the way up. All traveled well, aside from the Lightning Bridge shortcut. That was a slog, not recommended. Had to jump the creek.
The trough involved some suffering. Deep snow, some pockets were chest deep going uphill. Lots of snow on the ledges, narrows and home stretch. Ice forming from sun melt today. Wind was intense, building thru the afternoon. Made coming down more exciting than typical. Got rolled a few times in the Boulder Field. Crawled thu the Keyhole. I've not felt wind like that before, ever.
