The trail up to timberline is in pretty good shape, but the small creek that you must cross is currently running very high. The only way to continue towards the summit is to remove shoes and wade through knee deep rapids. It's completely doable, but be prepared to get wet...many people took a tumble. Past the creek the trail is great until about 13,500, where it became very snowy and whiteout conditions prevailed until the actual summit where it actually cleared up a bit. Bring spikes, dress warm and you'll be fine.
