Did the Square Top, Argentine, Wilcox combo. Up to Square Top patchy snow, but can be mostly avoided. No need for snowshoes. Same for Square Top Argentine Traverse. I returned by the going around the top side of Murray Lake and then roughly along the 12600 contour to avoid going back over the first two peaks (so the N slope of Square Top). Snow on that slope was fairly deep, often unavoidable, and I ended up post holing quite a bit.

Guanella Pass is open all the way across from both sides, however it is closed for construction 8-11 and 1-3 weekdays. During the open times you still may need to wait a 1/2 hour or so for a pilot car on the Georgetown side.
