Snow at Dicks Pass- Desolation Wilderness
August 04, 2017 01:38PM
Has anyone been over Dicks Pass recently- Desolation Wilderness. I'm planning on doing the PCT through there in 10 days, and I am concerned about snow /ice on the north
side of the pass. I'd rather not carry micro spikes, but will if needed. I had a lot of trouble with snow and ice around Sonora Pass in late July last year, so now I am more cautious.
Thanks!

I've been over that pass in snow before and didn't have any problems. The landscape is 'open' and easy to traverse and switchback at the top. If there's snow!
