We went up today from Spring Creek pass. In the morning there was a nice frozen snowmobile track to follow. Once we reached Snow Mesa we needed snowshoes til the final summit ridge which we gained from the saddle between Baldy Cinco and No Es Cinco. During the crossing of snow Mesa and the ascent to the saddle we heard nearly consistent whumpfs in the snow, but it was too low angle to slide. By the descent the snowpack was unsupportive and we were postholing in our snowshoes. The lower trail is starting to melt out and had numerous dry sections from the Mesa to the Pass.
