Powderface ridge (cumbersome travel on Friday with snow)

Starting at rainy summit, some minor snow amounts in trees high up and just below the sub-summit, reasonable travel. Up the south summit and traversed across the ridge to the north. Some snow to deal with but reasonable. However, the trail from the north summit through the trees east of the ridge and back to the col was all snow. Knee deep and mostly supportive, but tedious. Warmer days may be more problematic.

An ice axe and crampons would have come in handy descending through the cornice. Pole tips helped in a pinch. Snow was just soft enough noonish to kick some steps in the hard snow.

95% snow through the trees on the east side of the ridge.
