Chord was in good shape. Saw first rockfall around 8:10. left th at 4:15 and summited at 10:15. Back to the th by 1:30ish. the bit from the top of the coulior to the summit took over an hour just to ascend and had waist deep powder in some areas making travel and route finding very difficult. I ended up climbing and downclimbing some easy but slippery 5th class rock to avoid some of it.

Awesome job! Looks like a tough day! Did you by any chance see what the coverage looks like on the upper East Face and the traverse from the Bell Cord?
