Anyone going this friday?

I'm going solo and was curious about the trail condition, weather, and need for crampons...

Were you able to get a permit? (because you need one and they can be hard to get)

I went up on Saturday, no need for crampons/any ice tools. 

Was a windy day, so insulation for the early morning and then a windshirt is all which was really needed for me. 

Probably 25 and sunny at the summit. 


Good luck! 

I am making a 2nd attempt (this time solo) a week from Saturday.

I hiked it four days ago. Almost no snow. No need for ice axe or crampons if you're doing the regular route. Not sure about mountaineers. 

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
