I was in Miter Basin June 20 - 23 (2012), via New Army and Cottonwood Passes.New Army Pass
: No snow on trail as of 6/21 (small snowbank bordering last few feet).Army Pass
: As of 6/21, 40 yards or so of easily passable (no special equipment required, by first hand accounts), steep, exposed snow on the topmost switchback. Boot tracked and very soft by noon. I'd hazard a guess that the entire trail will be ice free within 2 weeks.
I've only ever seen it this dry in late August or September. Mossies were very active only in the evening and early morning – enough so to drive me into my tent or don my head net. Marmots very bold.Army Pass from Cottonwood Basin (6/20)Ersatz Crutches ( ?!?) below ArmyArmy Pass Trail from summit plateau (6/21)
