Info: No traction carried and wouldn't have used if carried. Ascended via Chicago Lakes and Mt. Evans road. Traverse to Rosalie and Rosalie summit appeared snow free.

Info: No traction was needed from Rosalie to saddle and most of the way to Epaulie. Ice axe and crampons were helpful the last 50-75 feet to the summit, and especially on the way down. I'd recommend summiting to the left of small rock ridge, as the snow is much steeper than it looks on the right.

Route: from Summit Lake

Info: General conditions for the Evans group. Pretty good area to stretch the legs, and the lungs for this season while lots of mountains are still a bit snow-sloggy. I parked at Summit Lake, walked up the closed section of road to the ridge, and hiked up Epaulet and Epaulie. 70% dry and the snow patches you have to cross are not huge or deep. You wouldn't want spikes or snowshoes. Also, Warren and Rogers looked similar, plenty of dry terrain to stroll up. Spalding looked liked the exception, with a bunch of snow still from what I could see. Couple skiers were still finding some decent lines on Evans north side, but that is drying up also, probably can't get a continuous line of more than 500 vert at this point.
