I believe Pearl pass is still impassible due to snow. I would guess Schofield is the same. Both should be clear by that time. If not I'll suggest, from Aspen you could go over Taylor Pass then Italian. Peal is relatively easy, but has some consequences if you did something dumb. Mostly Dusty, then baby heads, bunch of tallus, some exposed granite with little waterfalls. Easy in a truck, PIA on a dirtbike. Creek crossings on the South side can be deep sometimes. Maybe that's the reason for the higher rating.
