Coxcomb, El Punto, Heisshorn, Redcliff, and surrounding UNs are presently free of snow/ice. The Middle Fork road is rough 2wd (well graded and smooth with the exception of 3-4 brief washouts). Hunters and big trucks galore.
Coxcomb - webbing is currently in good condition. The ~5.3 notch is about 25 ft and a 30 m rope is more than sufficient for TRing it on the return. 2 x 30 m ropes were plenty adequate for rappelling (~65 ft) the 4th-5.0 chimneys descender's left. While the chimneys are only stiff 4th and arguable 5.easy, those not familiar with stemming techniques might find it awkward.
Heisshorn, El Punto, and 13222(?) in Porphyry - chossy, but only c3 with careful route/hold consideration.
Other UNs - class 2. Grassy ramps up all of them. Also plenty of scree and talus if that's your preference.
Might do a report later.
