Recent deep dry cold snow should make this route interesting. A mountaineers group scrambled this route last Saturday and reported challenging deep snow. Our team can choose cutting new path above the Pratt Lake trail, but will probably need to follow some tracks high on the narrow ridge to Summit: nice mix making last weeks challenging scramble more moderate this weekend.
