The snow along the route is only about 6-8" deep below tree line, which makes for somewhat easy route finding(it should be easier now that we walked a path). The snow will likely melt in some portions of way we treaded over, so, it could possibly be a much quicker hike before the next snow Wednesday Nov. 2nd('11). We turned around because, the slow pace(mixed with over sleeping) of getting through the dry powder, forced the possibility of not getting back to Denver before dark. We did get to about 12,300. From that vantage point, the North Ridge looked like the wind was scouring it of much of the snow. If you wake up early enough and are not on a schedule you could easily summit,particularly, if you start from the trailhead and not Winfield.-PM if you'd like some pics.
