|Peak:||Mt. Bancroft (13er)|
|Date of Info:||05/31/2020|
Road is dry until the upper gate. Today the lower gate was closed, but the seasonal closure ends tomorrow so that may not be relevant for long. Patchy snow to lake Caroline. Low angle ski line from the summit is in to lake caroline, but not continuous to loch lomond below. Steep ski line from the NE summit is full of avy debris.
We turned around around 12,900 with the awful freezes we've had lately. Minor freeze overnight on top of soft snow, we were boot deep in the snow at 7:15am. We figured it would happen with the recent reports but still decided to give it a shot.
Somehow I didn't take a single decent photo of the upper mountain, but this one shows the 'general' conditions
