There is a solid trench in from the previous weekend all the way to the ridge, making this a much easier day. We did not put on snowshoes until just below the ridge. The ridge itself can be kept at class 2+ with optional scrambling opportunities and was drier than expected. Microspikes/crampons are overkill for most people right now. This route is typically a huge day in winter with 5K' of vertical, but it is very reasonable right now. Message me if interested in pics.
