Camped down near and with enough distance from South Colony Lakes. Conditions dry the whole way, minus in the red gully (avoidable).
After tagging Crestone Needle via standard route, we had service to re-verify our weather window for Crestone Peak and then went for it.

If you decide to do the standard route for both Crestones in a day and avoid the traverse, I suggest doing them in the order like we did: Crestone Needle, then Crestone Peak since the red gully on Crestone Peak requires less route finding and the ridge after is well cairned.
