Was that the extent of the snow on October 8th, or were there any more patches?
That was just the patch in the shade on the north face. There were a few other patches, not too many though. Mostly the places where it was shaded most of the day.
So THAT'S what the traverse from Jepson to Gorgonio looks like. Funny how that snow patch was a beautiful cornice just a few months ago when I got sunfried on my day trip to the summit.
