    Hiked 6-27-17. Snow starts at mile 3 and doesn't stop until you get to the saddle. Ice axe and light crampons/ spikes are highly recommended. Also use lots of sunscreen (we hadn't fully intended to summit but ended up being out 9 hours and I'm paying for it today) You will definitely want to have a GPS with the trail loaded onto it. We found it was generally easier to try and stay over top of the trail (because it is covered in snow, you get it). This lets you clear some of the cliff bands other terrain obstacles more easily. The push up the saddle is doable but rough. I would recommend after clearing the first cliff band by staying with the trail that you stay low instead of trying to diagonal your way up to the saddle. Find a straight up hill shot at the saddle and work your way that way. It was a long hard day but doable if you are committed, take you time to pick your route and consult your GPS often to stay on track. Its going to be late July to mid August until you can do this without wanting ice gear. I'll try and load my track so you can see how we approached it. Hard but fulfilling day hike this time of year.
