Mosquito Pass road out of Leadville is snow-free and easily drivable to the winter closure. After that ... snow. Snowshoes highly recommended, mostly for the descent. Or skis, if that's your thing. There's a lot of snow up there, although it's solid in the early a.m. The route is straightforward.
We'd aimed to traverse to Dyer but encountered an impressively, impassively loaded ridge, particularly at the crux. It was difficult to distinguish ridge from snow and cornice. It could be done with proper care, axe, and crampons (spikes likely insufficient), but one of our team lost their axe and that was that. After the crux, the route looked fine. The entire range is draped with snow.
