No snowshoes were required. We climbed up the Angel to Shavano and then over to my real objective, 13,712. We did not descended the standard route but glissaded down the Angel. There were pockets of snow between ~11,000 and 11,400 but it can be avoided. In the afternoon, some minor post holing was encountered but was tolerable.

In the early morning, crampons would be advised on the Angel.

No Snowshoes! That is what I like to hear!

What time did you start up the angel and what time did you descend?

We started up the Angel at 8:00 AM and descended at 12:30 PM. By noon, the snow was significantly softer and for us, we had a descent freeze the night prior.
