Trail is beaten down really well to tree line. Very little snow on the trail and it was melting with the heat today. Above tree line there was no path to follow due to the snow and wind over the past few days. Used GPS to find the trail from tree line to the saddle before the crags. Once in the saddle, the trail was wind blown but very evident. Deepest snow was about ankle deep. Watch the creek crossing just below tree line. The water froze way beyond the banks and is very slippery! Micro spikes and snow shoes are not required. Beautiful day to climb - warm and no wind!
