Snowy on the way up but it was mostly melted by the time we were coming down. That was on 10/12 so I'd bet that it's pretty much all gone by now. I was the only one in a group of four who used microspikes, I'd bet that they would have been worthless even a day later.

This route is way cooler than the normal route up, but you definitely need a 4wd high clearance vehicle to get to the trailhead. But the worst part of the road is pretty close to the trailhead so you can probably make it pretty far without significant offroading capabilities.

You can make it within .4 miles of the trailhead with most vehicles. I did it on the 11th and made it that far in a highroof cargo van
