I believe all routes are technical for probably the rest of the year

Done from Horse thief basin, it is challenging and looks to be a nice scramble to finish. Plus, you can stroll the tundra over to the Devil's Playground (or plaything) and then hike to Pikes if you like. Some of the photos of the tundra up there look really nice, and the big horn on the Pikes Massif are usually very abundant.
