Don't bring ice axe or microspikes or snowshoes. Bring an extra pair of socks though if you get wet crossing the river haha.
Summer conditions sans a couple snow fields at treeline. Snow fields avoidable yet a bit irritating. Only 2-3 ones. The river crossing is interesting. Did barefoot on the ascent and found a place to long jump (6 to 8 foot jump) on the return. Very fast deep river this time a year.
Above treeline everything is amazing looking. No snow on the crux of the route or the ridge at all. Beautiful views of other Sangres / Spanish peaks.
Get on this mountain. Amazing climb!
