Myself, and 2 others were turned around at Broken Hand Pass. The wall of snow in the gully was soft power over melting ice. Seemingly impossible without crampons and ice axe.

Humboldt is good to go, there was very minimal snow when we did it a few weekends ago.

We are planning on going through here on 6/20 or 6/21. Do you think the snow will be clear enough to use just spikes + axe or do you think we will need crampons?

How much snow is left in the cottonwood creek drainage and around cottonwood lake?
