I was wondering if anybody has climbed the Northeast ridge route on Shark's Tooth lately. Is there still snow? Thanks for any beta!

another day in the park
I was up there around the 4th and there was still snow in the Gash but not up to the base of the climb. A light axe might be useful, but not sure you need full crampons.

On Fri, we avoided using an ax by hiking left up a wide chossy gully near the house-sized bivy boulder below the initial headwall, cutting back right across an obvious wide ledge (some loose), and then scrambling (5.0 or 5 ft gap jump)a dozen ft up to gain the headwall and hike across talus to the route. We descended the snow in the afternoon as it was pretty soft. An ax would be useful if taking the snow ramp early morning.
