You could probably make it without crampons if you follow
the road to the radio or microwave towers on the ridge. From there it is flat until the last 1000
feet to the summit. If you stay on the ridge and out of the chutes
you will most likley be fine. Bring and ice axe and if it has
snowed recently beware of avalanches, but if you stick
to the ridge you will reduce your exposure to slides. Whatever you
do do not take the regular trail in winter, it is VERY exposed.
Hope this helps.
