Pretty smooth sailing going up the Crags Route today. Below treeline there was maybe 1-2 inches of packed snow in the shade. Above treeline in the early morning there was ice/frozen slush which turned to slush by 11 AM. A few drifts here and there which were less than 1 foot in height which I easily bypassed. I brought my gaiters and micro-spikes but they stayed in my pack during the entire trip. Was on the summit at about 815 AM and I was really wanting some coffee, doughnuts, and chili, had to wait until about 930 AM for the summit house crew to open their doors. Route should remain easy until the next storm blows in...
