Minor snow, mostly boot-packed, from Hoosier Pass to the split with Silverheels' North Spur route. Heading north towards Hoosier summit, the first bump above 13,000' is holding snow on both south and north sides. I did not use traction here (but could have); gaiters were helpful for shin-deep postholing (sunny and 40-ish degrees). After the first bump there are only short stretches of snow, mostly on north facing pitches. Snow is usually mixed with loose talus, so watch your foot placements.
