Took the standard route yesterday on maroon in perfect conditions. Putting up a quick conditions report to mention the good state of the cairns on the route once you begin the more challenging stuff after gaining the ridge. The entire route from the point where you gain the ridge to the summit is well cairned. If you are concerned about routefinding then take your time and look for the cairns as they are well placed and will surely keep you on the path of least resistance if you just make a conscious effort to look for them. If this route feels sketchy or exposed at any point there's a very good chance you're not on the "trail" so you need to go back to your last known cairn and then move forward.

Did you capture an image looking over at Thunder Pyramid? Or can you provide details on what it looks like on that slope? Thanks.
