Snow South of Etna Summit

July 6th, 2017

June 19, ran into significant snow at about mile 1595 heading south. I am an experienced backpacker, but considered this dangerous even with micro spikes and ice ax. Informed by locals of similar conditions on north and northeastern slopes all the way to Castle Crags.
