Climbed Angel of Shavano and stayed on the northern arm had continues snow other than about a 0.1 mile stretch up to the east ridge and a little boulder hopping at the summit. Snow was firm all the way to the top. No snowshoes needed as snow was easily avoidable below treeline. Descended standard route and there is a fair amount of snow above treeline didn't need any traction around late morning but microspikes might be helpful early in the morning. There was a recent wet slide in the couloir immediately south of the angel.
