Snow/Ice Conditions on Deehorn Saddle, Harrison Pass, Foot Passes

Was wondering if anyone had been up over the Kings/Kern Divide in recent weeks. We're considering a couple routes. Someone posted a photo of Harrison in June that suggested it might be snow free by now but figured I'd ask if anyone had solid info. Thanks!

Your selection of route through the divide may depend a lot on which direction you are going. I went southbound through Harrison Pass one year (almost more scree than I knew what to do with), but it was a dry year. This year is also dry.
