πῶς ἔχεις...b1 ἰέναι lit. 'in what condition are you with regard to being willing ἄν to go...?', i.e. 'how do you feel' (cf. 176b7) 'about possibly being willing...?'. ἄν is odd, but serves to make Socrates' question tentative and diffident. The manuscripts actually have not ἂν ἰέναι but ἀνιέναι 'go up'; that, however, is never used of simply going to someone's house.
