Would agree with what illusion7il has already posted; I was the other climber he met. The gully definitely would be very challenging without traction and poles or an axe. Based on how little sun this route gets, I would expect the snow to stay around until next summer. Fun climb on a bluebird day.
I posted a few pics of the gully/north face to give an idea of conditions.
