We did not go up the east ridge so I have no info past this point. The mountain had a small amount of snow on it, everything looked avoidable. Wear your blaze orange, there were quite a few hunters in the area of the east ridge.

Yale's East Ridge - Avalanche Trail Head

No snow until the ridge crest at 11,900 where you turn left off the Colorado Trail.

Yale's East Ridge - North Cottonwood Creek

Snow is up to 6 in deep when gaining the 11,900 ft east ridge.
