Posted On: 2016-05-14, By: mrickers
Info: Intermittent patches of snow until 11,600'. I was postholing at 6:30am down low and on the way out. Continuous snow starts at 11,600' until the 13,000' saddle with Redcloud. Dry on the ridge until you need to skirt around 13561. Pretty much snow from there to summit. Ice axe, micro spikes, and snow shoes were very useful.
