The ridge from the Humboldt saddle to Bears Playground is dry. There was one spot roughly halfway across the ridge where a rock rib blocks easy passage along the top of the ridge. I downclimbed pretty far on the south side to get around it. On the way back I went on the north side of the rib and had to step a few feet across a small snowfield with some exposure to get back on solid rock. I might have missed an easier path. Getting up to Obstruction from Bear‘s Playground was snow-free.
