From "Every Mountain" there's a brief drop to the saddle down super loose garbage rock. There's snow mixed in but not a ton. The remaining hike to "Cooper Creek Peak" is easy, though pretty much everything is junky scree and talus. Plenty of snow but also plenty of ways to avoid most of it. On the return we came back to the saddle with "Every Mountain" and then went down from there. Don't go too far west or you'll run into an extremely loose, steep, and deep eroded gully. You'll want to descend far prior to that. If it ever gets too steep for comfort you're in the wrong spot, go find something that's less steep. Still plenty of snow along the way. Once in the flats we stayed north of the snowline and made our way back to the trail up the drainage. We wore trail runners but boots would probably be more appropriate. Ice axe and traction not needed.
