Went up to SB and SBE on 6/3. Trail is clear minus trees (more on that later) up to about 9,500.’
After that, there is significant snow up until you hit the SB Peak Divide Trail. It is soft enough that you can’t really go over it due to the posthole factor. It doesn’t affect navigation at all, but it certainly is annoying working around it. It is not icy at all, and I did not use nor need spikes. Once on the divide proper there is minimal snow to speak of.
There are a number of trees, seven or eight of them, down on the trail. I have pics and GPS coordinates of most of them. If someone can let me know how to get this information to the appropriate folks I am happy to do so.
