I did not summit today but I thought someone might find this information useful.
The trail is very well broken out all the way to Upper Chicago Lake. There is no need for any flotation or traction to here though some might want microspikes in a couple spots.
I briefly put on snowshoes to get to the base of the wall before Summit Lake.
I got about a third of the way up the wall before turning around. There was a good amount of snow and a few traverses, and a top layer of slabs were breaking off. This sketched me out and I decided to turn around.
