Snow and mud in places on the trail to Herman Lake. The snowfields in the gully and on the ramp above the lake were mostly avoidable. Avoided the cornice at the saddle on the south ridge by ascending the southeast face to the east ridge a short distance below the summit. Descended the standard south ridge, but continued south past the saddle and the cornice before exiting the ridge. There was some snow on the ridges, but Microspikes were not necessary. The wind shelter at the summit was full of snow. Dug in the snow but did not find a register and did not look for very long because it was 35° and very windy.
