Snowfields above 12,600', but generally on relatively flat ground so not too bad to cross. Can zigzag your roue to minimize your time postholing (snow was pretty soft by mid-morning).

The headwall/"crux" was completely snow covered and we didn't feel comfortable attempting it with only microspikes, so we went up the nasty/loose couloir to the left. The Atlantic/Pacific saddle is basically snow free (some still lingering on Atlantic's northeast face) and both peaks can be ascended from there 100% on dry ground.
