No snow equipment needed, take the first trail instead of the second to avoid water crossings, hike around the right side of the lake instead of the left to avoid snow.

Some snow in upper basin but it can be walked around, or on without traction/microspikes, it is only 15 or 20 degrees so not very steep. The "crux" is only like 10 feet tall so carrying a rope is probably overkill.
