I haven't been up there recently, but looking at it from the comfort of my home, it looks like the route would be doable. The east ridge is holding snow in places, but most of the climb looks dry, and the descent route is mostly snow.

Took this from the top of Basin Mtn with my phone on June 11:

I allowed it to apply the arty filter so you may want to take that into account, haha.

If I'm not mistaken it shows the east arete in profile and looks like most of the snow has blown off the upper part of the route.

See http://www.highsierratopix.com/communit ... =1&t=16043 for a recent trip report over Piute Pass including photos, though I don't think he inlcudes the east arete.
