Trail in great condition all the way, except maybe a tiny bit of mud in Upper Navajo basin. A few general updates:
1)Don't start your traverse too soon after the green buttress. Go left(ish) up the gully to the shoulder mentioned in the route description. Hike up even further to the right of the (current) snow patch following cairns. I started my traverse too soon at ended up some loose garbage. The cairned route doens't 100% match up with the 14ers.com gpx. See pic
2) The camping spots in the basin fill up fast on the weekend. You can always find a spot, but if you don't get up there earlier on friday you might have to hunt (or be close to others)
3) The exposure on the 4th glass summit pitch ain't no joke. Its not that hard, but oh boy
