The section through the willows down low is the standard bushwack, and is very damp. You would do best to not try to keep your feet dry. The scree gully leading up between Spalding and the Sawtooth is snow free and easy footing. The stream is currently flowing almost all the way to the top of the gully. Snow is a non-factor on Spalding or on the traverse over to Mt Evans. The Sawtooth is also snow free, and all snow on the Bierstadt side can be bypassed.
