Route: From Lackawanna
Posted On: 2020-04-26, By: supranihilest
Info: Easy traverse between the two peaks. Getting off "Lackawanna" was a bunch of semi-dry tundra. From the saddle onward to 13,660 the snow was somewhat deep and soft. The northern side of the ridge was topped with massive cornices. One steep, exposed snow knife edge had to be crossed, I kicked steps around it on the south side. This was the only spot an ice axe felt necessary. The remainder to the summit was easy. I returned over "Lackawanna". Microspikes were helpful for most of the traverse, an ice axe was useful for the one spot with the snow knife edge, and flotation was not necessary.
Route: French/Frasco/Casco/Lackawanna/13660B Combo

Info: Got under an inch of snow on September 16, but the snow promptly melted except for north-facing slopes. Slippy at points between Casco and Frasco, which was already the toughest part of the hike. There were some decent winds and relatively cold temperatures with the snow, so winter is on its way.
