Conditions were great for a snow climb. Snowshoes are needed from the trailhead to treeline. The trail is well worn and easy to follow. From ~11,500 the snow firmed up and crampons/ice axe can be used to travel up through the angel. The North arm of angel ends at about ~13,000. From there it is a scramble to the summit. The south arm is still has snow from the saddle all the way through the angel, but it is spotty in some areas.
