Do this now if the stair master at your gym broke and you find post holing in snowshoes to be a fun alternative! Snow is a mess of sugar. Between 10k and 11k, it's no exaggeration to say I sank to my knee (in snowshoes) at least one of every three steps. Above tree line is better and summit is mostly dry, but whether going east ridge or south ridge, there's no escaping the post hole apocalypse of the trees.

It was not a great day for pics, but I put up two. The broad flat area west of Windy Pt was mostly snow free and snow patches from there up the south ridge to the summit were short and much more supportive, but winds were blowing graupel at that time of my hike, so I have no pics of that portion.
