Below treeline, avoidable patches of snow, but this means lots of bushwacking. Above treeline, numerous bands of snow, most of which are avoidable. Walked on dry tundra and talus for all but maybe 100yds of the ascent. Then I realized the snow bands tend to be only 2-3in deep and just started going through them on the descent. No flotation or spikes necessary.

How was the road up 862? I've read on reports its not really 4WD but I curious about snow or ice. I plan on heading this way on Monday. Did you hit the Sheep Mtns also?

862 was totally clear of snow. I would say that you want moderate clearance and don't need 4WD, but I did it in a lifted Jeep and so I tend to overlook easier roads.

I didn't summit Sheep -- I just took its south slope to the saddle with Antora.
