An update from the last report - still a ton of moisture up there but the creek crossing is easily passable again. Marshy around the lake, but mosquitoes weren't an issue passing through. They were actually worse at the 10,100' parking spots where we camped. Hourglass still wet and we chose to climb left of the crux up and crab walk/butt scoot through the water on the way down like many others have mentioned. With approach shoes we were surprised how grippy the rock was even in the flowing water. Pretty much every 6 inches or so in any direction has a white mark from rockfall. Glad I never have to drive that road or be in that gulley ever again!
