Started from about 1.2 miles up the 4WD road (see TH section for more info). There was 3 of us, we all brought snowshoes but didn't use them. There was a nice boot track all the way through the trees. The snow was really windblown above treeline and never very deep. Took us about 4 hours and 40 minutes to summit and about 2 hours down. It was very cold and windy above treeline but summit views were awesome.
