Thanks Nick!

We did not rope up. We just climbed the rocks on the left side. We were scratching our heads at first but it ended up being a really fun scramble.

Summited and descended via MR on 07/01. We brought ice axes/crampons but ended up not using them at all. The chute has some snow at the bottom but most are climbing on rock for this section.

There is some snow left for the last third of the Final 400, but we chose to use the 3rd/4th class rock rib on the climbers' right. Some might rope up here on the way up or down (we did a bit on the descent,) but most of the rap stations have been removed at this point. We were happy to have a rope/sling as we rappelled off a block for the lowest 30 ft of the final 400, due to some frozen water runoff - but I think most would be fine with downclimbing the whole way.
