|Peak:||Hagar Mountain (13er)|
|Route:||E-SE face via Dry Gulch|
|Date of Information:||11/23/2012|
Initial approx 1.25 mi of dirt road and trail were mostly dry.
Mild bushwhack to 11,600-11,900 also dry with snow patches, nothing more than a few inches deep.
Ascending the E-SE face, found unconsolidated snow anywhere from 6 inches deep to 3 ft deep, covering rocks, sometimes able to utilize bare rock to continue climbing.
Only once in a shadowed area did I consider putting on microspikes.
Otherwise, this hike is good to go with gaiters/poles only.
Some light and mostly avoidable snow on the C3-4 approach to the summit, no ice.
