Lindsay was dry until the saddle but there was significant snow beyond the saddle from Saturday night's storm. We ascended the Northwest Ridge and found at least 3 inches of snow. Slick conditions prevented us from dropping down to the left before the ridge wall, so we had to climb over the spires. Sketchy. Microspikes highly recommended. On the descent we went down the gully. There was 16 inches of snow in the center of the gully which actually made the descent a little easier. We passed one guy ascending the gully and he looked to be struggling with the slick and snowy conditions.
