The road was clear with no rockfall and no snow until the final switchback which is where we parked. Found the trail markers and started up the cutblock, which was steep and a bit slippery where there was no snow, and was the hardest part. Pretty quick after the cutblock, snow coverage was 100% and 4 of 5 of us donned our microspikes. Routefinding was fairly intuitive, in that when we checked the gps, we were already right on the 'trail' each time. Some steep snow, definitely avalanche hazard earlier in the year.
We saw another group coming up behind us that we believed had taken a different route and on the way down after them, we saw their tracks go into a basin west of our route, possibly accessed from the cutblock and spur east of ours? We were quite happy with our route though and would recommend it.
