Thanks for the pics and report. I have been looking at the mountain for the last week wondering what shape the route was in. Do you think ski crampons would have sufficed through the middle and upper mountain or were boot crampons ideal?
We went up today to check it out. Crampons of all sorts remained in the pack all day. We probably hit the middle and upper slopes a bit later in the day than cascadekid, but I think ski crampons would perform sufficiently. The corn was prime for lapping on the upper mountain by midday.
