First half of the hike was like any other normal day, up to the ski hut.  From there you definitely need crampons to progress further.  I ended up climbing up the punch bowl (probably not the smartest move), and continued up to the top.  While climbing I had applied sunscreen multiple times and still managed to lobster up from the sun.  Top was cold/windy which is normal, but had absolute spectacular views of surrounding areas covered in snow.   Love hiking this mountain and looking forward to continuing the challenge!
