Was able to drive 0.5 from the trailhead with Subaru outback. similar 4wd vehicles made it a little further, depends on your comfort level for driving on snow. started at 3:30 am, base of the couloir at 6am and summited Torrey's at 7:45. A lot of skis on, skis off on the way to the couloir. In the couloir the snow was punchy in spots sinking down to the ankles, and firmer in others where I could only get the front points of my crampons in. There was only one person above me on the way up and rockfall was a clear hazard, and the person above me was not the one dropping the rocks. Almost hit by smaller sized rocks on 3 occasions. Dropped in around 8:15, great corn off the top and it was on the heavier side and warming fast in the middle, and good corn at the bottom.
