Easy snowshoe conditions on the road from Paris Mill to Kite Lake. From the lake TH, good snowshoeing up to 12,700 onto the East slope. The slope to the saddle is a rough combination of deep snow and shallow rock fields. The ridge is an even worse mix of deep snow drifts, hard and windblown ice/snow, and rocks. No consistency for snowshoe/crampon/boot use. Didn‘t get above 13,700 but if you can handle those conditions the top didn‘t seem like it‘d be much different.
