Donned microspikes just after the cabins, was slipping more than expected but could have been my balding boots. Snow varied up to a few inches below treeline, the maybe bootlength at and above depending how you choose to tackle the slopes. Once on the ridge, snow thins out and it's choose your own playground. Ridge between 13,660 and Lackawanna lacked alotta snow. All thin or avoidable. The slopes back down, however, was either too warm or thin to plunge step properly, so it was more like boot skiing.

Routefinding was interesting as I definitely broke trail, but it is easy enough to make it if you have the map (definitely use it to avoid some of my silly mistakes).

Hey @durkan I was directly across from you on UN 13,736 and Champion today. I found your gloves, I think, on the trail on my way out if you dropped them.
