Made the traverse from Audubon to Paiute. It is almost entirely melted out except for a couple minor snow patches that did not warrant putting on traction or bringing out the ice axe. Descended a couple hundred feet down the south ridge towards Mount Toll and decided to descend the SE-facing snowfield ending at the bench around 12000. The snowfield is continuous, but I opted to downclimb a few hundred feet to avoid some rocks sticking out about halfway down before glissading the rest of the way. The snowfield on the saddle between Paiute and Toll appears to be in good shape for a climb right now as well.
