Almost summer conditions - almost. From the trailhead dry conditions abound, then somewhere around 10,500' or so the snow starts and it's deep and awful. Waist deep postholing is the name of the game until treeline (at least without snowshoes like we opted to do), whereupon there's almost no snow at all. The final scrambles to the summit are a joy and are totally dry on solid rock. Exposure is high in spots but not insane. If Little Horn is your only objective return down the northeast ridge. If continuing to Fluted and Horn the remaining route is dry until you're back below treeline again, where the snow returns.
