Ascent Trip ReportTook the PCT on the way up and commonwealth basin trail on the way down. We didn't go up to the katwalk, because all returning hikers mentioned about snow that was difficult to traverse in non-mountaineering boots or without an ice axe.
So, we instead went straight up to the summit via the south-west face about half a mile before the katwalk. The south-west side gets a lot of sun so snow was not a problem.
The summitpost page has a good description of this route straight up to the summit:
