Below 4,000' the Wednesday rains softened all layers of snow down to the ground to the extent that snowshoes were needed to avoid deep post-holing.
At 4,000' to 6,000', snow had a thin fragile ice coating an underneath was firm enough to easily support crampon travel. At 6,000' on SE and S slopes there were hard layers at 30, 90, and 190 cm below the surface
At 6,000-8,000', there was no surface crust at 6,000 transitioning to a thin rime layer by 7600'. The east side of Monitor Ridge (7100-7600') has accumulated well in excess of 200 cm of snow since 12/29. There were hard layers at 95 and 210 cm. The snow was all firm enough that crampons only sunk 2-6 inches. I dug down to the 95 cm layer and found it strongly frozen to the snow layer above.
