Lots of snow up there still. Spotty post holing/flotation begins at around 9600‘ all the way to 11,100‘ At least one good dry campsite there. From camp nearly continuous flotation required all the way to twin lakes. Stopped there due to questionable snow conditions, warm temps and saw several wet slides . My recommendation is to get a "very very" early start on any of these peaks right now. Overnight lows are not cold enough to make any boot pack and it warms up so quickly that all routes are questionable for ascent by as early as first light.
