|Peak:||Handies Peak (14er)|

The snow is melting fast on the west face. Between 12,300 and the summit I got maybe 1000 feet of snow climbing. The top 300 feet is pretty much bare. The east face still holds quite a bit of snow. I descended the standard route and there was a fair amount of snow. Because I was early it was very firm.
