We went for this classic loop (Venable Trail up, Comanche Trail down) knowing snow might alter our high plans. Sure enough - the Phantom Terrace is holding a bit of snow & ice currently. We waited until we were sure it was a bad idea; then ascended to the NE ridge above us to obtain Venable. The connecting ridges to Spring & Comanche had no snow of consequence. A few patches of snow greeted us on the trail section just below the ridge on the Comanche Trail as we returned to willowline.

I always try to use all 8 photo spots... I figure more visual info is better than less.
I'll have to get out with you & Brian sometime!
