The north buttress route is mostly snow-free as are the routes up "Northeast Crestone" and "East Crestone". There is a bit of lingering snow at the top of the northwest couloir that we avoided by climbing up the rock on the right side of the couloir. In speaking with people who came up the standard (south/red gully) route, any snow left is completely avoidable. Traverse to the Needle is dry as well.
