Does anyone have any recent trail conditions from the Vivian Creek trail to San Gorgonio?

Thanks

Not the most recent conditions but we did it on 5/9, the snow was almost continuous from just beyond Halfway camp

We hiked to High Creek on 5/22. If you don't actually lose the trail, you can get to High Creek camp over mostly dry trail; just a few snow drifts that can be passed without crampons. Looked pretty snowy beyond High Creek camp and I imagine crampons will make life a lot easier there.

Here's a good route up Vivian Creek when there's snow on the trail (some of it's on the regular trail and some of it is via the standard winter route):

If the trail is free of snow, just stick to the trail.
