When I did this route, snow conditions were perfect for practicing various crampon and ice ax techniques. We chose to use a running belay for nearly the entire route and bypassed the ice bulge, saving it for another day.
Descend by your choice of trails back to Appalachia. If conditions are good, I recommend walking around the lip of the ravine to go down the Airline, which will give you a nice view of the route you've just climbed.
