Almost summer. Can't quite drive to the end of the line in Iowa gulch, but what's an extra 1/2 mile on roadbed?
You can almost keep this dry if you want to and are willing to take a few steps on packed snow here and there, but it is so much more fun on the remaining snow fields - a few post holes to the hip, but largely consolidated.
What I'm glad I brought: cheap nylon pants to glissade.
What I wish I had brought: large-basket (ski) poles instead of tiny-basket trekking poles.
What I didn't bring and was unnecessary: axe, crampons, spikes, fancy telescoping poles (there's no need to side-slope such that variable length poles are worth the weight)..
