Hiked Jones via Snare Gulch from the Cataract Gulch TH. All avy debris cleared from the 4wd road. The Snare Steps are mostly clear, although very annoying for hiking with a variable rock surface. Think Rock of Ages, but not many people to form a trail. Followed the mining roads to a small lake at 12.8 just southwest of PT 13,342. Gained the Jones-Niagara ridge just northeast of the saddle via a mostly grassy rib off the lake. Some loose scree near the top but not bad. Rest of the way to the summit is dry and a use trail is visible. Descended via the low saddle which was fine as well. Segments of use trails here and there to get back to the lower mining roads.
