Hiked Spread Eagle & Cloud Pk (UN 13,524) today via E ridge using Gibson Creek TH -- same route that can be found on 13ers.com.
TH access = no issues.
Some snow above treeline, but at this time I dont think gaitors or traction is necessary. From summit of Spread Eagle, we descended the S/SW ridge and traversed to UN 13,524 (a.k.a. Cloud Pk). Snow still not much of an issue with current conditions.
Descended back to saddle between the aforementioned peaks and descended to the N from the saddle, down to Lake of the Clouds.
Hiked out Lake of the Clouds trail back to TH.

Question: Is Cloud Pk an official name? Its on my map like that, but on 13ers.com and TOPO! it is UN 13,524.

Who the he** let you back in the state? Lame

Monster, relax -- I'm only here for a week. I'm on vacation!
Then it's back to some other state that doesn't want me. Or, more like a state that I don't want.
