Climbed today and the route is mostly dry. Above 13,500' you will run into some snow and ice. I did not use microspikes, but it would have provided nice traction.

Was up Holy Cross yesterday as well. Got a late start, summitted by way of Halo Ridge and came back down the North Ridge. Snow was not an issue at all on the ascent, but I agree that there were times I contemplated breaking out the microspikes on the descent. Rock hopping to the side of the trail worked out though. No one besides our group summitted from Halo Ridge and with our late summit, we did not see anyone, so I was curious if anyone had made it up from the North Ridge. It was a beautiful day...glad you made it out there!
