Looooooooong approach, but nothing difficult - we put on snowshoes at the mill and kept them most of the remaining hike. The lake is frozen and covered over enough to be crossable, though going one at a time is a good idea.
Plenty of snow crossings on steep terrain above the lake. Taking the most direct route up to Clinton puts you onto a particular steep, powdery slope; a way to avoid this is via my descent route of a faint but present trail that goes up McNamee's slopes directly to its summit.
I only did Clinton and McNamee. My buddy went in to Travers and said that the descent along its ridge to the basin was full of unconsolidated snow on loose rock.
