More details on the hike to the pass:
Trail to the pass is snow free. People who would like to continue further toward the peak are welcomed to join me, while others enjoy a sunny lunch break with great views at the pass. It’s a moderate snow scramble to the peak. Bring waterproof boots, traction (e.g. microspikes), gaiters, hiking poles/ice axe.
