Ascent Trip Report

Dayhiked via the North Couloir. Snow conditions very good with no rockfall observed. Snow starting too soften up at very top. Just kicked steps a little deeper for the added security. Upper part of North Ridge easy.
Lots of people on summit - nobody else on my route.
North Slopes a pain to go down - loose scree/rock.
A couple of false starts in early AM.
