Heading in soon and I was wondering if there is any ice on the approach or descent. Are crampons and an axe necessary right now? Haven't been there before. Thanks.

For sure not if you go in Silverstar Creek, which is probably the best access for the route versus over Burgandy col. As long as you don;t get sucked into the slide alder.
You can count on Americans to do the right thing after they have exhausted all other possibilities.

Did this route a few weeks ago approaching via Silver Star Creek. No snow other than tiny patches at the base at that time. Didn't need more than tennies.

We stashed bikes near the Burgundy trail, drove around and approached via Silverstar. Stay left out of shrubbery and then cross over in open terrain. There is really no bushwhacking on the approach. Then we descended down the W side and biked back to the car. Twas lovely and seems WAY less masochistic than carrying overnight gear up to Burgundy col.
Earth and stone echo my bone.
