Mount Daniel/Lynch Glacier

The entire traverse below the Daniel Glacier is snow-free and generally worked best by dropping down to 6,000' to 6,100' feet. Outlet of Pea Soup lake was thoroughly snow-free, but the alternate minor notch worked great for descending scree/talus to the shore of Pea Soup Lake. 40 degree hard ice for the first 100' to gain access to the Lynch Glacier - could have used one or two screws to protect it. Glacier is more broken up than I've ever seen it, but we were able to navigate along the left side (mostly). Another huge crevasse right before the snow ramp to the summit notch, but passable on a small ice ramp on the far right. The descent down the Hyas basin had very little snow; we worked our way over to the (skiers) right side ridge and descended the climbers path.
