Basically Summer conditions from South Colony Lakes.
Broken Hand Pass - ok without spikes or axe but helpful with small snowfield.
Red Gully - per previous reports snow is 95% avoidable. Take climbers left up on the largest snowfield.

Snow melt is causing some rockfall in the red gully. Be mindful of other climbers near you and wearing a helmet is always recommended.

1. Largest snowfield from almost above it. climbers ascending climbers left of snowfield.
2. Broken Hand Pass
3. Broken Hand Pass
4. Above largest snowfield to the top. I crossed here and stayed climbers right up.
