No snow. Some light rain around noon that passed by. Thunder and more precip around 4pm or so.

Apache ESE slopes: Loose scree and talus social trail. Dry - some mud/water on Isabelle trail. Yay. Shortcuts from the basin to the Isabelle Glacier trail are available. Navajo snowfield in for ~400-500 ft. Looked like very light snow accum. on Navajo N face.

Ascended via Lone Eagle and Mohling Traverse: rap station is in very poor condition and needs to be replaced and cleaned up if you plan to rap (25 m). DC was fairly straight forward on horizontal exposed E ledge (5.0) to obvious weakness that can be DCed (4th). Cool mix of Owen Spalding belly crawl and Broadway step across.

Party of 3 just under 13 hrs from Long Lake TH over Pawnee Pass
