The trail is in pretty good condition this year. Some of the steep slippery gravel sections have been tamed by putting steel wire fencing material on the trail surface. At first it looks like you might snag your Vibram soles in it and trip, but it works great. Hope they put the wire on more sections of this rather tricky trail.
The only two things you need to worry about are your own fitness and the weather. Fortunately, if you don't have the stamina to make it to the top, there are plenty of nice viewpoints to sit down and eat lunch before you turn back.
Hot weather can heat up the South and East slopes - make sure you have plenty of water on a warm day. Cloudy weather can obscure the fantastic view that you get from the top.
This remains one of my favorite Pacific NW day hikes.
