I'm assuming you mean Dusy Basin to Italy Pass area. I have heard this is one of the harder sections of the HSR, as it includes Snow Tongue Pass. Are you experienced in x-country travel? This year should be a great year for doing the SHR if you don't want to fight the snow, but there is a lot of talus and boulder hopping that goes along with the no-snow scenario as well.
Are you planning on coming in from the East side? If so, we did a nice trip that started at Onion Valley going over Kearsarge to Roads End, starting the HSR and going out at South Lake coming out of Dusy basin. It was a fantastic hike, and I want to finish one of these years! We didn't see a soul while on the HSR x-country sections of our trip. It would require two cars to pull off the shuttle, or a friend or hitch-hiking.
