I went up Friday 5/16 in my stock Toyota Tacoma and drove up to about 9880, the switchback with parking for a few vehicles right before what some call "jaws 0.5". Up to that point the road is dry. Hiking up the rest of the road was dry except for a few small patches of snow (wouldn't be a problem). The big drifts of snow which would stop any vehicle wasn't until after jaws 2 or possibly jaws 3 (I don't know exactly what jaws 3 is; there are so many nasty spots that all look near impossible). Also, the creek crossing below jaws 2 is low at this point, easy to cross with simple rock hopping on foot.
