|Peak:||El Diente Peak (Unranked 14er)|

South side was completely clear of snow today. When we got to top, we weren't surprised to see north side was snowed in. We had to climb the ridge to get to the top. Exposure increases, as does difficulty. We avoided most of the snow that was on the ridge, but there are places where it is unavoidable. We took cramps and axes but did not need them. Hope this helps someone who's planning to climb before it's too late.
