Should have a TR from Eolus/N Eolus posted in the next few hours so check that out for recent conditions soon.

I walked in there on the 8th and out on the 12th. It snowed about 30” at our base camp at about 11,000' over several days. On the way out snowline sat about two miles (estimate) below the base camp. It has probably receded a bit the last few days. I would expect to walk most of the way in. Wait till you are totally sure snow is continuous before starting you skin, there are several strips of snow that look skinnable and then turn go dry for a long ways as soon as you skin around the corner.
