According to the summit register, I was the 2nd person up in 2003. I find that hard to believe, but conditions were late snow which makes this route actually quite difficult and exposed at the top. I did not take crampons, but my predecessor did. I found using his steps helpful. I preferred the ridge the whole way which avoided literally all scree. I used the ridge as my descent as well (some down climbing), which of course took longer than the scree as well. I made the summit in 3 hours and lolly gagged at the top and on the way down. Views were great!
