What a climb! This one is a bit of a grind but is doable. No need for scrambling, spikes, or anything at this time of year.
Bugs were a bit annoying below the treeline so bring your bug spray if you want to stop for anything. They didn't bother me when I was moving.
Weather was mostly good, although some storm clouds rolled in when I was at the summit and dropped a bit of rain and hail for about 10-20 minutes. No lightning thankfully.
