No mud and very little hard pack at the top, that's easily avoidable. I would only caution early risers about a bit of ice on some parts of the upper half of the trail, where the combo of water seeping from the ground and heavy use erosion made me slip once, before I noticed in the pre-dawn light. It all melted shortly after sunrise. Otherwise, late summer conditions!
