thinking of heading up that way on tuesday. I wonder what the lower ridge was like? Crevasses barely covered? Looks like it was almost corn-like and surely well consolidated.

We found clean lines down from the ridge to around 6100. It was well consolidated and corn... better corn than I found all last spring!

What was going on on the other side???

The other side was a mixture of various spring conditions, with lots of hidden rocks.  The trip report is here.  I bet I saw more goats than you, though.
