In the past few weeks we have had a series of small storms that have dropped fresh snow on the mountain 4 inches here, 2 inches there, 8 inches another place. I have not had any new reports to update what you have seen, but I would expect the area above High Creek to still have thick ice and will still require crampons and ice axe – the whole nine yards. Micro spikes may get you as far as Halfway camp or High Creek, but doubtful you can use them above there. We had a rescue on Vivian Creek trail last Saturday that the Sheriff’s office posted on Nixle (nixle.us/BNNRQ)
Wish I had better details but now the road is open I expect more people to go in there.
