Minimal snow on the upper portions of the approach to lake ann. In between lake ann and the upper unnamed lake there is a dry way and a snow covered way. We didn't summit (turned around at 12,400ft) because the final approach to the ridge held a large snowfield and we both didn't have gear. I would have been comfortable with microspikes and ice ax. My buddy wanted crampons. There is a rock rib that is completely dry that looks like another safe way up
