This was an enjoyable route. The snow bridge was still very much intact. In fact, the lakes were still snowed/iced over. Several sections were steep before the gully but the gully itself was more straightforward than I expected. The slopes were icy in the early morning and I was not comfortable wearing microspikes (i.e. crampons would have been MUCH more secure/safe). The views from the summit are top-notch. Highly recommended.
