Good snow conditions today, spring is ready to pop! Mostly dry up to the first little peak before Cupid, then most of the route has a bit of snow and rock. Did not use microspikes at all the whole day, though they would've helped in a few places. The final ridge going up Torreys has this strange little chute filled with snow that would've been great/safe to ski though perhaps not worth dragging the skis all the way along the ridge for. The snow on top was somewhat wet by around 10 am with a hard slab underneath. Gaiters are highly recommended right now for this route. Lots of lines on neighboring peak look like they might go wonderfully in spring with a safer snowpack. The north slopes of grays was completely dry except for the north slopes route trail switchbacking up the face, which looked to have enough snow on it that it could be skied, even all the way to the summit possibly.
