Really enjoyed the route. It was pretty late season so route finding was difficult. I highly recommend it if you want to get away from the crowd. We went Labor Day weeend and had the entire route totally to ourselves.
We camped at Sherman overnight and started at 4 AM for the summit from there. Route finding was difficult late season (big crevasses) so it took us until about noon to summit and get back by to camp by 4 pm. Weather was great, didn't need much in the daypacks.
