Made it to the same spot as previous, just slightly below the summer trailhead. Road blocked by ice. DON'T park on the ice sheet, someone's car slid and domino'd several other cars into each other. The road/trail is almost completely clear the entire way, there are patches of ice intermittently up towards the large structure at the back of the valley. I kicked some steps up maybe 50 feet of snow to gain the ridge, but others were veering a little farther south and walking up, no issues with traction (though microspikes might be a good idea). Upper ridge had a little snow, what existed was almost rock solid and I plunged through to my knee less than 10 times the entire day. Cake.
