|Peak:||Vermilion Peak (13er)|
|Date of Information:||10/21/2012|
Totally snow free on the ridge. No significant snow until 13K. Enough snow on the slope to the saddle to actually be helpful (holding the scree in place). Used an ice axe on the descent, but probably could have got by with poles.
4WD trail head easily accessed in a 2WD. Lots of potential ice routes forming on the approach to ice lakes.
Nobody had signed the register since Brian Thomas on 10/6.
