Ascent Trip Report

Snow from about 4000' on? Warm day - snow on ascent to Headlee Pass was very slushy; concern about descent. Fortunately a Boealps party of 30 came through afterwards and stripped much of the snow to dirt. Bluebird skies everywhere. New snow dump about a week prior; recent avy debris in Headlee Pass gully 2-3 days old. Not enough snow elsewhere to avy.

Three stream crossings, one major over rocks and slippery log.

Snowshoes would have been helpful. Only brought microspikes.
