I was able to drive my Forester to about 1.3 miles short of the Rainbow TH. Snowshoes are an absolute must have at this point when descending from treeline. We postholed from treeline at 11,600 all the way down to 9,800', adding a few hours to our trip. Above treeline, the snow is fairly scarce, making the route more of a Class 2+ difficulty for the final 400' or so of vertical gain.
Please feel free to PM me with any questions. I'd be happy to help.
