Snow on the music pass route to the boulder field was minimal. Among the boulder field, snow was patchy, 2in in some spots to 2ft in others, with plenty of boulders, willows, and ground patches visible. We didn't go up the ramp as it was already our turn-around time due to incoming thunderstorm. I'm not sure if we would have gone up the ramp or not, had we more time. The snow quality was very wet and sparse. There wasn't enough snow or ice to use crampons, and an axe would have no purchase either. The rocks were very wet, of course. Perhaps the snowshoes would have been needed on the ridge had we got up to that point, but as far as we got, they weren't necessary.
