No, not perfect corn but not too bad either.
Peter and I had a pretty good ski on this route on Saturday. We started our descent at about 11:00 which was probably about a half hour late since the snow on the Roman Wall was already starting to get a little deep and challenging. The snow stayed pretty fast for most of the run though with some leg burning, small sun-cups towards the bottom. The Pumice Ridge is melted out so a carry of 150'-200' is required. Crevasses in the usual spots but no sketchy bridges or crossings. We saw no other skiers heading down on Saturday and only 10-12 people on the summit. Several skiers/ boarders were on their way up on Saturday as we were coming down - including a guy with a one-of-a-kind party dress!
Definitely worth the effort and our third year in a row on this route.

Awesome!  Thanks for the beta.  I'll be up there on Saturday, so this is just the information I needed.

Thanks for posting.
