Traversed from Wheeler, descended E slopes of McNamee.

The road from Montgomery Res is mostly snow-free. Hefty vehicles were making it to the junction heading up to Wheeler Lake (though tearing the tundra up in a drift spot).

Crampons/axe used on Wheeler, but it would probably go without. Scramble section dry.

No gear needed for to traverse to/descend Clinton/Mcnamee. Essentially dry or consolidated snow. In the morning, spikes and axe may be useful in gaining the upper basin. A bit of skiing still possible off of Clinton, but its melting quick.
