Significant snow on the mtn above 13k feet. Luckily someone had been up recently and there was a nice boot track all the way to the top otherwise I wouldn't know where to go. This track may be more of a winter route as it stays left and intersects the ridge way left of the summit at a notch (at the top of a couloir). We didn't bring any traction or an axe but it would be a good idea to have them. I thought of doing El Diente by the Class 4 route and then the traverse but bagged it given the snow. I've included a couple of shots showing these routes for those who are interested.
