Comments
Comments: valley way relatively snow free, "a couple of 100 foot sections" below hut was the best intel we got. one nice snowfield on Gulfside above col wasn't really avoidable but nice and soft to cross. Madison Hut closed but Croo was there, able to get water. Awesome day up Caps and across.
