The snow has melted from much below the gulley, but the gully itself and Lavendar Col were full of deep (8-12") snow. Will probably melt quickly in coming days. The snow compacted very easily, I don‘t think you could have slid if you tried. We summitted with poles, gaiters, and microspikes. The V-notch was full of snow and slick, - we took 10 minutes to clear snow/ice from holds before attempting a hairy climb.
