Didn't take the summit trail, but I don't think the route taken merits a new trail submission.
Started from the lower Agassiz parking lot, headed up through Dutchman, past the crash site, and took Allison Clay up to the ridgeline. Snow seemed very stable, especially heading up Allison Clay. There were some stretches where the spike of my ice axe wouldn't even break through. After 3 false peaks, made it up to the summit.
Started back down and followed some snowshoe tracks that took us down a different route than what we came up. Unfortunately, following these tracks led us across a scree slope with snow shoes on.
Temperature never got above 20° from what we saw, the real killer was the wind, especially going up Allison Clay (lost feeling in the downhill hand a couple times). If you're going to do this in the winter, make sure you're prepared.
