Still a lot of snow on this route. Just about the only bare spot was the final stretch up to Grays -- other than that, it's all snow. Luckily, the snow was hard enough in the morning to climb without microspikes, but it was definitely softening up by the time I got down, around noon (it was a sunny day, but with strong winds, which I think kept the snow hard a little longer). Not sure spikes or snowshoes would help because it's that slushy, soft snow that's not really good for anything but postholing. The snow makes the trail hard to follow at times, but it's very well boot tracked, so it's easy enough to pick a line to the top. Seems like the snow is melting fast, but there's a good amount of it left.
