Good trench to tree line. From tree line to ridge it was untracked deep snow through willows with the occasional wind crust slab. I was sinking knee deep on skis. I gained the ridge scrambling up the only dry wind blown section seen from a distance. Midway across is my estimate. You could just go up the toe as well but it's not as direct. Ridge to summit was mostly dry and was easy hiking but got burned on the wind forecast which made it a little more annoying.
