Great day, no snow in the chutes. Couple of downed trees to cross, but manageable. Nice 3rd class scamble to the summit, easier than haystack on In my opinion. Trail is smooth enough to jog down. 2.5 hrs up, and 1.5 down. Parked at the lower TH, but you could save yourself a quarter mile if you parked at the forest road that intersects the upper trail, although I'm not sure you're supposed too. You need a NW Forest Pass to park at the lower TH.
