The road to the summer TH is almost clear of snow. The road is rough in some sections but should be passable for 2WD cars driven cautiously. The trail up Grays is clear in a few areas but mostly packed snow. The snow is hikable in boots but microspikes will make descending more comfortable. Microspikes and an ice axe are not required for the traverse down from the saddle, but will definitely make it easier.

South Slopes?

I'm hoping to go up the south slopes this Friday. From the summit, did you notice the conditions down there? Is there much snowpack left, or is it mostly free and clear? Any help you can give me (a picture, perhaps???) would be much appreciated!

I looked off the west and the south sides of Grays and commented to my partner, nelsoq, on how clear the slopes were. There was snow down low, but very lignt only above 12K.
