Echoing Grover's sentiments on GC. Conditions are in for this route with reaching the summit successfully. Variable, still a decent amount of snow around. There are many high-quality lines that will go. Angle definitely steepens towards top. But, completely manageable. Alpine start mountaineers. Flotation not needed. Bring traction / ice axe though. Left tracks that can be very clearly followed. Stay safe. Make a trip up and enjoy the great outdoors. Pictures included for beta
