Great conditions all the way. Snow in the amphitheatre, perhaps 1/3 of a mile stretch, but comfortable. Spikes might help in the early morning. The scree slope up to 13,000 is very loose and steep in several areas, making the climbing on the last 1,000 feet more enjoyable than that section. There are a couple spots of snow on the ridge leading up toward the final stretch, but they're easily avoided, not even on trail.
