All snow is either avoidable or pretty inconsequential. It's always a joy this time of year to haul the snowshoes up just to not use them.

Trail is totally dry until just before treeline. There are a few big patches of snow around treeline, but they're pretty easy to avoid or just walk over for a few steps at a time, never thought about putting spikes on. It does obscure the trail in part, but at that point it's clear where you need to go. Rejoined the trail at treeline, avoided all snow from there to summit.

I didn't go over to PT 13,832. The ridge was really snowy, you'd definitely want an ice axe and spikes. I felt too out of practice to get myself on steep snow.

Everything else in the area seems to be still holding a lot of snow. I'll add pics when I get home. This would be a wonderful trail in the fall!
