Route: Little Browns Creek
Posted On: 2020-06-13, By: dwoodward13
Info: Loop up Little Browns, down Browns. Hit White->Cronin->Lo Carb->Cyclone->Carbonate. Full summer conditions. Descended Cyclone/Carb saddle. Glissade opportunity if you want, otherwise you can stick to rocks. There is a old mining road that will pretty painlessly lead you to the active 4x4 road to Browns Lake. It's visible on satellite views.

Info: From Browns Creek it is near summer conditions. I travelled on snow for about 100 yards. It was solid in the morning and not that bad on the return. 
Route: From Browns Creek

Info: 95% of the trail is dry, but you'll need to lug snowshoes for the other 5%, especially on the way down (there was a half mile section I would not have been able to cross without snowshoes, in the morning or afternoon). The roads are full of snow, so I just headed for the ridge. The ridge was bare. No other traction needed. Microspikes would not have been enough. It should all melt out in a week or two (it's melting fast).

Info: Dry below treeline, snow appears around 12000' and there is one unavoidable patch several hundred feet long. It is not steep, however, and was solid in morning and mid-afternoon. Too shallow to get a good glissade on unfortunately. Below this snowbank is a creek crossing with a snowbridge, into which I postholed on descent. All other snow is no big deal or avoidable. No snow above col with Antero; road goes up to about 13300'; Class 2 scree slog above that. I believe the east (further) summit is highest. Antero looked to have one remaining snowbank up high, otherwise dry.

Info: Dry and easy ascent once you're already at the saddle between white and Antero. Stable talus up the WNW side, loose scree coming now the north side.

Info: From Browns Creek trail. Very little snow. Mostly all avoidable other than a few short crossings. No traction or flotation necessary. 
Route: Baldwin Gulch Trailhead

Info: Road is clear of snow until the upper switchbacks. After that, the snow gets increasingly deeper on the road. Off the road, the snow is sporadic but is generally only a few inches deep when present. I didn't use microspikes or snowshoes, but they could have been useful on certain sections of the road (there were tracks where other people used snowshoes on parts of the road). There will probably be a lot more snow soon.

Info: I hiked from Browns Creek TH. There was a bit of spotty snow here and there, but basically clear the whole route. No micro spikes or gaiters needed. 
Route: Little Browns

Info: Little Browns trail was 99% dry. Some snow as you neared the saddle, could go around, if needed. Snow covered the road on the north mountainside of White, but other than that, the roads were snow free, as was the route up the ridge to White.
