Summer conditions on most of the route, I put gaiters and spikes on before reaching the saddle. My buddies skirted off route on the rocks to avoid the snow, so you definitely do not need this equipment to climb at the moment. This route was a tad boring but you can make it a little more fun by climbing off route if you so choose, like we did. Started from high up in the basin around 5am, summited in approximately 2 hours, so topped out around 7am. Headed back down and rode the saddle over to Eolus.
