In speaking with the ranger last weekend I had the impression that the order requiring quotas had expired (temporarily) but that it might be replaced by another order much like the Lake Fire closure expired but was then replaced by another order. Also, it seemed like he said it would still be required to get a permit.
As far as having no limitations on numbers, if it starts to get overcrowded like Baldy then I hope they reinstate the limits right away. Who wants to show up on the peak and have a couple hundred people up there? I enjoy running into others on the trail, but if it turns into an overcrowded mess that would be a shame. Nothing wrong with giving this a try, but I hope it’s a cautious try.
