Hiked up Cucamonga via Icehouse Canyon on Saturday.
Small patches of snow/ice from 7500ft to the peak.
Crampons not required at this point.
2 larger sections that require crampons to walk through, but there is a small use trail which has been made to climb straight up to the next switchback, bypassing the ice.
Windy and cold on the West faces, warm on the East faces.
Recommend bringing a hard shell jacket, beanie, maybe some lightweight gloves.
I was down to shorts / shirt when on the East faces, bundled up on the West.

When climbing Cucamonga peak via Icehouse, once you've passed Icehouse saddle, the trail is covered in a lot of ice. Crampons are highly recommended.
