First FKT on a relatively new route up Melekewa Pass and around Snow Lake. Trail essentially non-existent from Melekewa Lake until Gem Lake with route finding difficult after the pass. There are occasional herd paths that peter out after a few hundred feet and are difficult to pick up again after the numerous scree slopes. Cruisin' from Jem lake back to Snow Lake TH with only small rollers to surmount. Snow mostly melted on north side of pass. It's possible to get down to the lake without crossing any snow.
Note: This FKT was completed as part of the larger full loop route
