Mostly dry route with a few, avoidable (or low angle) snow fields. I didn't bother taking my axe out, but it would be a good idea to have one. And it saves a bit of talus hopping.

Easy snow up to the Rock of Ages Mine (avoidable by taking a talus line). Some snow immediately after the Gladstone saddle (stay just above), and a few patches along the traverse up to the ridge (talus hop around or climb through with an axe). Otherwise, talus and dry scrambling. Crux is dry and far easier than it appears from the false summit. Marmot ate my hat.
