    I was there starting in late March and it actual got down to freezing a couple of nights but by the time I left I doubt it got below 50-55 at night. I used a 20 deg down bag which on hind site i could have gone a little lighter and taken my 30 deg. For you i should think a 40 deg or maybe even a 50 deg summer bag should be plenty. If money is no object and you are walking I would go with the lightest down bag you can find. Zpacks have some 40 deg bags that only weight 12oz.
