I took the standard route to Crestone Peak, from Colony Lakes over to the red gully. The south side of Crestone Peak and Needle is devoid of snow -- except there is water running in the red gully. The northwest couloir is full of snow however. And the last stretch leading up to Broken Hand pass has some very awkward snow. An ice axe is recommended for the stretch below Broken Hand pass.
