No significant snow below 12,600. Some in our party used crampons from there, others put them on higher up, and others went without crampons by traveling between rock outcrops. Started from lake about 5:15 am, reached top at 10 am without much postholing. On ascent, stayed on snow and gained the ridge according to gpx track (south of peak and notch), then followed some cairns on rock to descend. Still some good glissades on the way down but snow is melting rapidly. Backpack in from TH took 5 hours, log jam easy to cross. In camp - deer and porcupine sightings.
