I summited Metal Dome yesterday. Morning conditions were lovely, sun shining down. Snow was hard with a bit of crust. Rocks and trees poking out up to 2000m!
Snow started to soften by 11am, and began to ball up under my microspikes. I expect it was quite mushy by the time the sledders got going (they were getting ready as I returned to my vehicle). Some cornices looking heavy, but safe travel if you avoid them.
