As Piotr stated, some snow and ice after the knife edge below the white rock on the north side for about 30 horizontal feet. Many dry places to put feet with careful footwork, and going without spikes was perfectly adequate, but some may feel more confident having traction just in case.

Snow/ice on the rest of route was avoidable.

Maybe avoid this route if you're lacking alpine experience or at least do good research. Some guy brought a friend from out of state for her first 14er, and the guy was completely unable to find the easy lines and had her screaming and crying on multiple occasions. It was awful for her and not a pleasant experience for anyone on the ridge. Don't be that guy.
