Great trench all the way to Black Lake. Above Black Lake, a mix of snow and rock to the base of the Trough. The Trough doesn't have as much snow as usual. Variable conditions from post-holing to decent booting to nice spring-like styrofoam. Narrows and Homestretch both have a bit of snow, but very manageable with traction (I choose crampons for Longs, but spikes probably would have gotten it done yesterday). It snowed on us pretty good on the walk out, so the trench will need a little refresher I'm sure.
