BFR: I will definitely alter the text in the first post in the thread with a warning about icy conditions. The death on May 6 underscores the danger. Thanks.

I agree with BFR. I’ve only used the “easy walk off” two or three times, and it’s always been worse than it looks. I’ve found deep, unconsolidated snow that could easily send you for a ride down the steep north face. The safest way up and down is usually the “final 400” chute or the rock on the west side of it.
