Dry-ish, most of the way. The lichen covered rocks were wet/damp and slick. One short snowfield between Epaulet and "Epaulie". Can go around, but was easy enough to cross at a mellow angle, ~20 feet across. I met, "Brad" from, "Summits on the Air." He broadcasts from a peak, twice a week (year around), had an impressive antenna setup and everything.

Hi Val!

It was great to meet you! I was really surprised to see another person during the week on an off-trail 13er. Thanks for coming over to talk to me and ask what the heck I was doing there ;-). I hope to see you again on another peak soon. Make sure you come over and say hi when you see some of us nutty radio operators up on the Colorado high peaks.

You nutty guys are hard to miss, with that big antenna! Thanks for providing more interest (and education) to my day....

Best wishes!
