Though difficult to locate, there are cairns on the Ellingwood South Face trail. No snow on the trail the whole way. Any water crossings were completely manageable. We drove to 8200 feet and parked there. An intrepid Subaru driver might be able to make it another mile maybe. You can do this as a one-day hike, but it's long, 16.50 miles and 6k of elevation gain. Study the pictures that are on the route description, otherwise one can find oneself on loose terrain and Class 3 areas. Got a little off route on the way up and it was definitely Class 3.
