Partly sunny forecast means we're good to go this Sunday for Vesper peak. Ice-axe, helmet, and 10 essentials required. You will not need hasty harness or crampons. Microspikes might be helpful if there is snow left on the upper ridge and beyond the trail. There will be a creek crossing, but logs ought to be available for us. Trekking poles might be helpful, but they can be shared for the crossing.
