The ridge itself was mostly clear with only occasional icy spots which were easy to walk around over rocks. Same lakes were already frozen and some not. Getting liquid water, however, should not be a problem.

If you need/Want a partner let me know! January works for me and my climbing partner (my wife) did Whitney and Muir last winter. We are planning a trip for late January.

Planning a mid-January trip out there and praying for good conditions!
