Info: Route was clear and dry to about 13,000 ft with snow to the saddle. Snow was mostly 4" or less with a few drifts to 12". Snow is hard packed in some areas and traction was nice to have but not an absolute requirement. The remaining route to the summit and down the west ridge was clear and dry.

Info: Did the 4 wheel drive road up burns gulch and parked at about 11000 ft. Ascended burns gulch and did Niagra peaks noth ridge, then jones‘s south ridge and continued noth to the summit of American (American pie combo in the Gerry roach 13er book). Great fun route totally dry, no snow anywhere on the route. Descended back to burns gulch from jones/American saddle making a nice loop! A great way to do all the jones group in one fell swoop, it took my experienced partner and I 6 hours altogether with at least 45 minutes on each summit
