My Experience

Response to Kings Peak in June

 

I don't know if my experience could be described as typical, but on June 14, 2000, when I climbed Kings Peak, I encountered only a bit of snow near Gunsight Pass and a little bit just below the summit. I did the entire trip in running shoes without postholing and did not use my ice axe. Crampons were not necessary. I've heard that the preceding winter was a low snow year, so take my experience as anecdotal and keep tabs on the snowpack in the early spring.
