Hike up basin from Twin Lakes and NE ramp were covered in snowfields filled with suncups. In the early morning, these firm cups provided relatively good steps to ascend on, though an ice ax was helpful. We also had microspikes but members of our party would probably have felt much safer with crampons. Coming down this snow later in the morning, it was softer and didn't hold as well. Ice ax was even more helpful there. Higher class 3 terrain after the notch to summits of both Eolus and N. Eolus were snow-free and straightforward.
