Mostly summer conditions. I did use crampons and an ice axe for a small section, but could have gotten by with just microspikes (especially later in the day, but I was glad at 7am to have crampons). Stick to the ridge before making it to the saddle between Parnassus and Bard: there's a lot of snow/ice on the trail below the ridge to the east, making it difficult to cross.
