Lots of snow in N-NE facing gullies. Had to get creative on NE ridge. Would suggest ascending from SE ridge via Governors or traverse to SE ridge from Yankee.

Also, Gilpin has snow on its north ridge but can be avoided. Main issue there is super saturated soil which seems to make talus all the more slidey and dangerous.

T5 holds lots of snow still and looks like one would need traction and axe particularly for pinch spots
