Is there a running watter creek on Breit.. approach? We are doing a double and it would be nice not to carry a bunch of extra water.
Thanks
Doug

Pete Creek is intermittent. When I did it a few years ago there was water here and there but not constantly. There was a nice waterfall on the upper mountain but I suspect that was because there was a pretty substantial snowfield still present above it. I'd bring enough water for the whole trip just to be safe because having it up there is not certain. Maybe someone who's been up there recently would have better info.

down low. Still a waterfall up higher.

The patches of snow up there are going fast. Not sure when the water will disappear after they're gone.

At about 9,200' there is a good section of water to draw from.
Hike on!
