Once we came up from Guanella Pass to just below Mt. Spalding, the conditions along the way to the peak of Mt. Evans were not too bad. Once we came in view of Abyss Lake there were about 3-4 small patches of snow, about 10 yards or so each, that we had to hike across on the way to summit Mt. Evans along the rocky terrain. That was a little hairy but we did ok. We took the same route back so we hit up the snowy patches again with some caution.
