I just found the below update on the national park website:
Old Army Pass:
8/22 - Snow fields are avoidable with some class 3 scrambling. No gear necessary but extreme caution is still urged. Navigation skills are a must.This is an unmaintained trail.
New Army Pass:
8/22 - Clear of snow. No gear necessary
I'm heading to this area in a few days also, and although I like the shorter Army Pass route, I plan to go the safer New Army alternative unless the class 3 scrambles miraculously become class 2 in a few day's time.
