Climbed Sunlight, then Windom. Watch for loose dirt and rocks on Sunlight approach; helmet a good idea. Snow field (20'-30' wide?) to cross just above Twin Lakes with a shallow pitch, it was very packed down and easy to navigate with one pole and tennis shoes, glad to have pole because it would've been a nuisance to slip and have to climb back up, but not life-threatening. To get from Sunlight to Windom, you could likely avoid snow fields if you choose the right line. We chose an efficient line with two small (5 feet wide?) snow fields, again glad to have pole there. Arrived in Chicago Basin via Purgatory Flats, the entire 17 miles was in excellent shape!
