This probably is a nice Class 2 walkup in ordinary summer conditions, but right now, the summit ridge is Class 3. Snow is waist-deep in places. No point in microspikes, as it's too soft as soon as the sun hits it, but gaiters and/or an extra pair of socks would be useful.

Snow had melted on the road by afternoon and most of the route below the false summit had linkable talus-hopping.
