Road is clear of snow until 12,500', and what's left above is easy to avoid on foot. The gullies all have deep enough snow for crampons and an ax. Ridges are mostly clear of snow, but snow isn't completely avoidable on the Northeast Ridge. Conditions were perfect for glissading in the afternoon.

was up there 5/25. No way this report is accurate. There were 2 ft high snow drifts on the road all the way down to 11,500.

Maybe you got your elevations wrong...but this conditions report is bogus.

edit - pictures don't lie...

Flint must be mistaken, as I saw none of these drift.
