Route up to the bench by Coffeepot and over to the Black Gully is dry.

Black Gully is snow-free, but really wet and muddy.

Above the Black Gully, there are a few snowfields to cross. Ice axe was nice. Did not use traction of any kind. (pic #1)

Summit pitch is dry. (pic #2)

We descended the choss slope below the Black Gully, also dry. (pic #3)

Go get it!

Right branch at the top is definitely easier, not class 4, we were through it before we realized it was the "crux". Wonder if it has filled in with dirt since Roach’s 13 book was published.
