Hermit Road is clear of any snow until around 10,400. From there until the saddle there are a few hardened snow drifts over the road. Saddle and final pitch to the summit is largely clear of snow. Managed the whole thing in trail runners with no problems.

Photos are: 1) Eureka's north face 2) Hermit's north face 3) Rito Alto's SW face

Just was there climbing Eureka and Silver. I want to do Rito Alto to Peak of the Clouds.
