Valhalla Traverse 2017

August 6, 2017
Valhalla Traverse is snow free.  One small patch of snow/ice near the "bowl" makes navigation somewhat easier, but it is entirely avoidable.  The "bowl" is extremely loose, variable and somewhat muddy.  Light crampons and axe makes the traverse feel more secure.

Traverse is mostly snow free and appears to be negotiable without traveling on it.
