Road to Pole Creek TH is dry and accessible. Route up into the basin is mainly dry and free of snow, or avoidable snow. Still a bit of snow just below the Class 3/4 section of NW Pole. Pole Mtn is fairly dry on the traverse from NW Pole, snow can be avoided. Creek crossings are navigable without issue.

Drove in from Creede / Rio Grande Reservoir. Didn't make it across Pole Creek to see what conditions looked like towards Stony Pass.
