Did Southeast Slopes today to summit Atlantic and Pacific. Planned to follow a right angling path through the upper left (south) side of the headwall snowfield, but up close it didn't look doable for trail runners and poles. We opted for the loose scree gully to the left of the snow. This was very unpleasant except for the more solid rock in the white band. Easy to avoid the remaining snow above the saddle for either peak. Glissaded the upper snowfield on Pacific and also the headwall with just poles, no axes.
