The first 3 miles of the 4wd road are almost free of snow, with a few icy spots. Just up from the junction / stream crossing, however, at about 11,000 feet, there is a long icy section that would not be fun in any vehicle. I parked just below this. Above tree line, long sections of the road are free of snow, but it gets a little deep approaching the ridge. I left the road, taking "option 1", and found the talus hopping fun and free of snow. I ascended via the ridge crest, but took the "old trail" down. The old trail was in good condition, and easy to follow, at least from this direction. Clear skies and little wind. Happy trails!
