theres potentially some hazard on that route, mostly around the 7th step, and around other places you will probably want to go if you're up there. carrying crevasse rescue equipment is generally recommended for the area.
i wouldn't take ice screws, the snow is deep.
most people don't bring snow pickets... if necessary, deadman your skis for an anchor.
