After traversing a while and still not getting to Dylan's preferred route, we decided to head up a draw that looked snow covered and steep. It didn't disappoint as we headed up at a nice steep angle with crampons and ice axes. It was getting warm and the snow conditions were deteriorating but after a short while we came to the ridge and the end of the snowfield. At this point Dylan decided to head over to the "Prime Rib" route and stay on the snow while Steve and I continued up the ridge sans crampons. In short order we were on top trying to get out of the wind. Now where did that come from?
