I hiked the Iceberg - Cecile - Minaret route last week (north to south). As others have mentioned, the route between Iceberg and Cecile is a use trail. Easy to follow, but crumbly, so expect that some of your steps will include a bit of sliding as the scree gives way. Hiking poles were very helpful. Other than that there are no particular challenges at this time (no snow or ice).

This is a very scenic route and just adventurous enough if this is one of your first forays off the beaten path.

Well I'm back from my trip! And it was fantastic!!! Thank you all for the great info I received on this site.

I can tell you that my favorite place to camp on the entire 5 day trip was on the north shore of Iceberg Lake. Simply stunning and completely isolated. Far enough away from everyone.

Here are some of the pics.
