Ironically they departed 31L from KE intersection with winds of 010 at 17 reported by tower prior to takeoff roll.

So 04L would have actually been less crosswind, but they were departing 04L and 31L KE dependingn on the first fix on the route.
(Flights with first fix RBV are in that scenario generally departed 31L KE)
