I went there without knowing what crampons/ice axe are (used a single trekking pole all the way), didn't know why people use a ground pad- under my unrated borrowed sleeping bag, brought 1 liter of water for the whole climb (and had only about 200ml/no food for the summit "climb)."
If you know how to set up a tent, will not continue on if weather gets s*** and know how to use ice axe/crampons you should be fine. People make it look more complicated than it really is. There will also be about 10-50 people attempting it during weekends. Route finding is not an issue. Good luck, it is a beautiful place.
