Route 2.3.4 in Dawson. Trail is clear of snow up to 13,000. From 13,000 to the saddle are a few patches of snow. Above the saddle at 13,400 there is no snow. The reason that there is no snow might just be because of the constant 60 -70 MPH winds with occasional gusts to - 'hang on to something'. Actually it wasn't windy at the top. Oh and it was about 0 deg F at the saddle (at about 3:00 AM). So yeah - it was cold.
On the way up on Friday evening (for bivvy at 12,400) I met two guys from Idaho on their way down. They had the Shavano summit register with them. I said I'd put it back on top. When I got there I found one of the register tubes smashed. The other had a register in it. So I put the register in the ziploc poly bag with the other ones in the gap in the rock. Needs a new tube.
