Hi, no I didn’t go any further than dollar lake but on my way to lake Tuesday I passed two young women and then one gent all headed down. The two ladies went to the summit and said that it was not bad at all and they didn’t even put their spikes on. The gent turned back just passed dry lake view saying he felt he needed spikes at that point. I believe poles and spikes would be all required. I had taken those plus an axe but the windy night, being alone and the lack of water were enough for me to call it for that trip.
