Almost snow free until Squire Creek Pass, then perfect snow conditions to the summit. Scrambled towards 'Squire Spire', but was not quite brave enough to finish it off without a rope and belay. I did get a great 360 degree view from the high point just east of 'Squire Spire'. Done as a '2fer' with Ulalach Peak.
Better to do in winter when snow is firm.
T-shirt climbing with inversion. No real snow until we had to leave the trail. Solid snow conditions. http://www.willhiteweb.com/north_cascades/higher_squire/eightmile_creek_trail_365.htm
What a great way to enjoy the day.
