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.
