There is a lot of exposed rock and running water at the pass. I was able to find a great sheltered place to camp there. Summit lake is still frozen as of 7/4/11 and there is a lot of snow on the west side of piute pass. I hiked over to and climbed Humphreys. If you intend to head into Humphreys basin, leave early and hope that it's cold that night so the snow freezes as much as possible. There are a lot of rock islands exposed to make travel a little easier.

Or any of the creek crossing in Evolution Valley/Le Conte Canyon? I'm planning a trip for early September, so I imagine everything will be melted by then, but I'm just curious how things are now that's it's August.
