Paintbrush Divide 2012
AUGUST 22, 2012 Dry JULY 18, 2012 The trail at the divide itself is now snow-free; however, hikers and backpackers must still cross three short sections of snow on the Paintbrush side. The lowest one, in the first photo below, is roughly 100' across and 2530 degrees in steepness and has a good boot pack traversing the snow. An axe is not required; however a slip and fall would result in a long ride down the snow below.
