Turn around due to a knee injury to a party member as a precaution.
Overnight at TH down into the teens and around 60 during the day - perfect!
Some lingering snow from a storm the previous weekend.

One other pair on the peak, and about a dozen on the trail back to the TH who were heading toward the lakes.
