Anybody been up around Saddlebag Lake, 20 Lakes Basin, Mt. Conness areas in the past few days? 

Looking for beta on snow conditions for trails, approach and Saddleback Lake Rd ... considering a west ridge climb this weekend or trail running.

These are from 10/2:  North ridge Conness from the saddle on descent and North Peak, the route I climbed.  Snow in the impasses, and some on the summit talus field—seems like it had stuck from a couple weeks earlier, and I think there's been at least one other snow since 10/2.  It was not much of hindrance in trail runners on North Peak though the icy spots got my attention.  

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
