  Oh, no problem on either by end-August, I'd imagine! I always like a
pole-or-something for the snowfield on Forester Pass, but that's probably
because I'm wobby/"accident"-prone. I'm trying to recall all the High
Route Passes...: I don't think El Nino snow (not _that_
out-of-the-ordinary) would be much more of a factor on them late-season
than in any year, but, personally, I feel comfortable with an ice-axe on
anything even slightly slippery that's cl 2 (see the klutz-factor above),
like whatchacallit pass over the Silver Divide.          bj
