Climb was snow free until about 13,200'. The snow was very shallow and presented no challenge to attaining the summit. Gets slippery in the afternoon if you stay on the packed trail. Traction devices not required. Muddy in the afternoon. Do not cross the creek in the morning at the standard crossing area! The rocks are covered in ice and not visible. Many people took a bath crossing the stream. Go to the left about 50'. Beautiful day on the peak.
