Hiked the standard route from S. Winfield TH yesterday. The trail is quite muddy above the basin and then has a surprising amount of snow on the trail above 13500'. It's pretty packed down and seems to be just snow on top of ice now. I really wished I'd had my spikes with me; as it was I only slipped once - thank god for good boots, and for the most part I could kind of 'heel' into deeper snow around the hard pack. A slip here wouldn't mean 'slide off the mountain and die' but could definitely mean 'fall hard and break an arm/wrist/tailbone/head'. Utilize caution and prepare accordingly.

Can't seem to Edit or delete this TR so to clarify - it's the standard North Ridge Route I'm reporting on.
