Great day on Princeton. Definitely need a 4wd high clearance vehicle. The road is rough. I'd say if you make it to the radio towers, drive a bit further up and find a parking spot. It doesn't seem to be much different after the towers than before.

The hike itself was nice. Class two, mostly easy, some loose scrambling near the top.

Two snowfields left. Had ice axes to self arrest in case of fall, but luckily didn't need them. Didn't have any traction. Just walk slow and follow the boot pack.

There were 20+ people on the summit. Kids playing music. C'mon parents. Teach them some etiquette. Lots of people on the summit and above 13k feet after 11am when storms came rolling in. Also dumb.
