Humped up a full pack from Blank Gulch Trailhead to *flat* area at 11,800 MSL - northeast of prominent bend in trail. Great view of peak & into valley below!

Carry lots of water - last liquid water encountered from Blank Gulch Creek ~10,900.

Started out for summit day hike next morning in a (light) blizzard! By 13,000 skies had cleared. Snow below saddle (top of Angel).

Near summit noticed cricket-like insect - life at the top :)
