I'm sure I would be comfortable in my WM 25 to below 25 F with some extra layers.
I thought my 15 degree down was perfect. My son has taken his 30 degree bag on a couple of summer trips in the Rocky's and he was cold.

Even in August, at 10k and higher....it is not uncommon to drop into the 20's and for flakes to fall.
