The trail to the top is completely different. Never mind that every groove and foothold is now full of gravel or white dust, many parts of the rock are gone or shifted. The top, before entering the trees at the halfway point, is completely covered by knocked over trees and other debris. The entire climb is somewhat surreal: There are very few trees, and every route you used to take is now missing or different. There are signs of shattered rock everywhere, and the white dust is pervasive.
The entire climb is treacherous now. It's not as bad as when it rains, but you can not trust your feet now, as they'll land on dusty slopes, gravel-covered ledges, or solid parts that aren't solid anymore.
Despite having closed the hill there were as many people as usual doing the climb. Knowing now what I do, I wouldn't do it again until some good rains clear the path a little, or the park rangers clear it up.
