Climbed Mt. Princeton via East Slopes route. Road is boot packed now. Left snowshoes in car. Walked on side of road past radio towers, postholed for 50 feet total, not including bypass for avy path, which has a reasonable trail now. East slopes are wind scoured. Gully crossings are safe. No wind loading up above. Snow is consolidated for 2-3 feet then rock. Top 8" was hard snow requiring traction or cutting steps. New snow may not adhere very well to hard snow in gullies, maybe it will blow away.
