Comments: Small, avoidable patches of snow as low as 3400'. Longer patches of snow and ice began around 3800'. Ledges are snow-free and and i was able to bareboot to the last big water crossing above the falls where you enter the dwarf spruce. Spikes went on there until maybe a tenth of a mile below the hut. Bare boots to Monroe and Washington. A couple stretches of snow fields left to cross on the way to Washington, but easily traversed without traction. Came back down the Ammo as I couldn't get any good intel on how messy the Cog was and I didn't feel like doing the Jewel. Descending the Ammo takes some care, but wasn't too bad. A gorgeous day above treeline for sure!!!
