Trail is very snowy from 12,400' to 13,200' an ice axe would make both the climb and decent easier and safer. Micro spikes were okay but crampons are probably better. Also, since the snow if east facing try and hit it very early on decent. We were descending at 9am and were still postholling in places. The traverse to drift is essentially dry with one annoying patch of snow just after the notch but it can be avoided and will probably be melted out by next week.
