Perfect conditions on the Needle. A small amount of lingering snow near the top of BHP made for 1 or 2 interesting moves in which microspikes were helpful; ice axe would be completely unnecessary. Water running down the east gulley was easily avoidable. The west gulley was totally dry. Gorgeous, warm, blue bird October day with very few people in the area!
