2012-05-05  From Hoosier Pass  Dry all the way to the summit and red peak. You will want ice axe for one short steep section of snow if climbing red mountain. spong0949   2012-05-05  0     Edit Delete 
2012-03-28  From Hoosier Pass  Conditions are very similar to Eph 2 5Ďs update 3/24. Except today, there was packed snow (super-highway) from Hoosier Pass to treeline. Today did not use any traction or snowshoes, though carried both, stashed above treeline. Minimal postholing without them. There are a some snowfields above treeline that can be either avoided or crossed without excessive postholing. Surprisingly dry up there. sunny1   2012-03-28  0  2    Edit Delete 
2012-03-24  From Hoosier Pass  After the short time (25 minutes for me) in the snow from the trailhead to a little bit above treeline, I reached the tundra which was almost entirely snow free. There were a few snowfields on the ridge, but they could almost all be avoided. Snowshoes were very helpful for the snow in the trees. The route to Red Peak was dry. The route to Red Mountain had one snowfield that looked kind of dicey. Eph 2 5   2012-03-24  0  1 1  Edit Delete 
2011-10-10  From Hoosier Pass  Hoosier Ridge & Red Peak from Hoosier Pass. A few inches of snow on most of the route. Sometimes deeper but never enough to want floatation. I had my MicroSpikes but didnít use them. Didnít need an axe but was glad to have a pole. The sun and wind is removing the snow where exposed. The wind was persistent today! There was melting today. I had soft snow, but there could be some melt-freeze ice forming. North facing slopes (Silverheels) were holding more snow. Some wind deposit areas had post holing, but not a lot. MountainHiker   2011-10-10  0
