Comments: Beau and I went up airline and directly out gulfside trail there were a few icy patches on airline and a few not packed snow patches but overall bare day. The day was special nice temps and low winds. I like the out and back.

Nice sized snow fields still on east side of Jefferson. Met one gentlemen who have been skiing a small but long snow field that looked like it descended over 2000 feet. Met two fellows doing a 2 day traverse as we came over and then back on jeff.

Caught up to Pam and Erica on Jefferson doing a presi-traverse.

And then we never saw another soul. Beau and I had a nice lunch on the hut steps. Watson path had a couple of icy spots for which I pulled out the micro spikes. Valley way was the worst for sporadic patches but we went around and over things.
