2wd road is in good shape, but there is a challenging river crossing in 4wd section. Saw several fairly burly 4x4 parked before that, but it's not a long walk/swim from the upper TH. Accessed Coxcomb from the saddle with Redcliff. There is some snow at the bottom of the climb to get to C3-4 terrain. Some running water past that and in the left chimney (the right one also had snow/ice). The upper terrain is dry. Webbing/rappel rings are in good shape. Used 2 x 30m ropes for the rappel. Rappelled most of the route as it was too wet (weather) to downclimb it safely. Route on Redcliff is completely dry.
