Road drivable to camping spots about 1/4 mi past radio towers. Hitched a ride for the last 2 mi up to the towers from a couple in a 2wd passenger car - bottomed out more times than I can count.

Went up Tigger's E. flank, descended Princeton standard route. If I had to do it again, I would avoid the standard route altogether (posthole annoyingness on the return). No avy concerns on route at the time. Used ice axe; snowshoes not needed; crampons may be useful if you ascend standard route early - I didn't use them at all via Tigger.
