Trail has a decent bit of running water in it in several places, especially the willows near treeline. One minor snowfield just below the saddle, traction aids not necessary. The ridge up is largely dry, but there are a couple more minor snowfields, again no traction needed as the snow was overall soft (and not that deep).

Pay attention on the way down from the summit, the rather featureless summit area makes it easy to get sucked onto the NorthEast ridge...we had a good chuckle at ourselves as usually we are pretty good at navigating, brains went into auto-pilot on this one. Traversing back to the East ridge above the cliffs there were a number of snowfields that were firmer (and steep), so we cut up a little bit above them to correct course, not a huge deal in the end.
