The first gain of saddle on Wetterhorn has quite a bit of snow still. However, me and the group before me traveled above it to avoid the snow. There was only one snow field where I used microspikes and axe. Mostly because I hauled them up, I figured I might as well use them. I did posthole a few times. Never past my knees. Otherwise, the steep sections on the final portion of Wetterhorn are mostly clear of snow. No equipment needed.
