Went up to climb the North Face of Navajo Peak this morning. No summit, the snowfield felt half way to mashed potatoes already at 8:30, seemed early, but we decided to bail anyways. Rock to the summit above the snowfield looked pretty clear.

Bailing proved to be a good decision as, by 11 am, all the peaks were enshrouded in dark clouds.

Apache couloir is in except a small constriction near the top. Queensway also looks pretty good.

Airplane gully still has quite a bit of snow in it as well.

Surprisingly the western most of the SW couloirs on Shoshoni looks like its still a pretty good climb and is filled in excepting a little thin at the technical rock constriction.

A scuba suit would be recommended for portions of the trail above Lake Isabelle.
