This route is mostly snow free. The only problematic snow is below treeline shortly after leaving the Huerfano Gulch trail. There are many snow banks dispersed throughout the trees that make the trail very difficult to follow. Because of this we ascended the boulder/talus field to the left and traversed into the upper basin around 12k.

The gully still has some snow in it from the start to the notch. This snow remained hard even into the noon hour. Not skiable though, the run out is snow free as of now.
