I had a permit for this weekend that the ranger station contacted me advising to cancel. The Horseshoe Meadows road is still under repair and the trail heads are closed. So I cancelled my permit and hoping to get up later in the summer. Hope this helps.

Apparently things have changed. I just called and was advised by Whitney Ranger station that the road is open as is the trailhead.

I just summited Langley via the NE Couloir yesterday. Looking down towards New and Old Army passes the 'trail' looked pretty clear with some occasional snowfields. Have no idea on what the passes are like though. Good luck!

is it hard to obtain walk-in permits for 6 for 7/7 for Cottonwood lakes?

On all trails except the Whitney Main Trail, 60% of permits are reservable 6 months in advance, and 40% are held back for walk-in requests. Those 40% are made available at 11 AM, the day before the hike entry date. There should be a good number available.

For that trail head, JM39 on this doc, there are 24 walk-ins available at that time. There just aren't 24 people who are going to take that risk, so your chances are VERY good.
