I wanted to do this after Whitney and am glad I did. Unless we get a real serious snow storm on the Peaks, I pronounce winter over. The snow was not very fun for this, and it was not as fun as I thought it would be. Think spring slop and a thin layer of sugar over hard pack. After I entered the Inner Basin I basically pushed on and summited for the elevation and to be able to say I did it. Crossing the dense trees on the north side of Fremont was like crossing a mine field with air pockets in the snow all over the place. Aside from the long approach up to Lockett, a Inner Basin trip would be nice as that was pretty, but making the peak with the current snow wasn't real fun. Still, it looks like it was probably better than the snow on the west face. Only summited Fremont.
