Snow on the ascent of broken hand pass, otherwise clear. The snow had a good boot pack. Spikes/gaiters recommend.

Good report! How did the Crestone traverse look snow-wise?


Gullies clear?

So after the saddle, the routes were clear of snow?
Which gully did you go up?

Yep, all clear after that. There were touches of snow on the final pitch, but very easy to work around. We did the standard route up crestone peak. There was also snow right at the base of the 5.2 boulder move, but it is flat there, so no spikes, and it didn't make the move any sketchier.
