Road in was dry seen people riding bikes in afternoon. Audubon is the same as last report no tracyion used and patchh snow until last 500ft. From Audubon the snow on the ridgr isn't to deep if on ridge proper. If off of it it is shin deep at most patchy on south side more consistent on north. From the base of paiute the snow is a lot deeper ice axe and traction I would definitely advise. Snow that was on the ridge was actually pretty consolidated for the most part so your traction and axe will bite well. Audubon was insanely windy in the morning making the trek to paiutes ridge a suffer fest. Other than that straight forward ridge just stay on the proper or the southern side. North side is cliffs
