We started early and didn't start running into people untill the way down which was very nice for this regularly extremely busy hike. We went up the snow on the back side of the peak then down the boulders on the ridge. It was a nice loop but I wouldn't suggest using the snow without experience in those kinds of conditions. The other people that came up latter all went up the boulder  ridge. Some of the clouds cleared out when we got to the top but Rainer stayed hidden this time.
