Dry summer conditions, just a little trickle down the center of red gully. The worst part of the hike was descending Broken Hand Pass - definitely bring at least microspikes, as the snow and footsteps are frozen solid and iced over. A tip: follow signs for Humbold/Upper Lake, and then take a trail connector to Crestone Trail below lower lake to save yourself some distance on "regular" Crestone Needle trail. This also avoids crossing a broken log bridge on Crestone trail.
