Comments: Slabs on the crest would be better when there's no snow cover.

Comments: The two prominent gendarmes on the North Ridge near the summit can be seen. The climb starts right above the person by heading up talus then left along the tree covered ridge.

Comments: Bottom left foothold has gone, which makes a little trickier to start - for me anyway.

Comments: Talking of robust features... the left hold mid-way up the left side of the flake has gone, it doesn't make a huge difference, but I put my left foot there, which now seems to little less positive.

Comments: I saw this yesterday - very very sad to see the tree lying on the ground, and if as you say someone pushed it over just to get to a boulder problem, that is the wrong precedence to set, as living things are more important than our egos. The whole area seems a little barren and depressing now. If the poor tree has to go I would suggest cutting it up for firewood, including the stump, as that's an ankle roller for the Mozart's Traverse.

Comments: I climbed a route on the north face once after a camp on the left hand of the northern low angle ridges. It was perhaps May of 1986, with a colossal sow covering.
