Anyone who climbed NEB via Crossover descent know what is the current situation with water sources or remaining snow? Worth bringing a stove?

I was on it last weekend.

There was lots of flowing water at/near the propeller cairn. There would be no problem getting water there.

There was a chunk of snow at the large bivy ledge but no real running water.

There were some sections of snow on the descent but no real substantial flowing water until you got past Crossover Pass proper.

We carried three liters each on a cloudy/cool day and that was adequate.

Good luck
Jonathan
