"V 2"  
Condition Updates  
Route: US Grant

Info: From US Grant, the traverse to V2 is quite loose and it was better to stay close to the ridge when possible. Once at the saddle, easy walk up to the summit. No register. 
Route: From Island Lake

Info: From "V 4" we returned to Island Lake then took the trail up to Swamp Pass. From Swamp Pass it's a Class 1 hike on an unofficial trail to the summit of "V 2". The first high point you reach is the summit, despite the far end of the ridge looking high as well. We went out to the end of the ridge and it was clearly lower from that vantage. We returned to Swamp Pass and then took the trail into Swamp Basin. The first few hundred feet are very steep and loose scree or hardpan, and by far the most unpleasant part of the descent. Once past this garbage hop on the obvious trail and follow it to Ophir Pass Road. Since we parked at Waterfall Basin we took the road through town and back to our vehicle. 
Route: Swampy Canyon

Info: A few patches of snow between the “scenic bench” and the base of the head wall to Swampy/Grant Pass, but nothing that causes any issues. The head wall is free of snow and steep and very loose, as expected.
