Get tips on climbing Mount Fuji (without the crowds)

I climbed Mount Fuji in July 2018 on the route that less than 7% take: the Gotemba trail. It's longer, sure, but you're not walking in a queue all the way to the top. Talk to me about what to pack, whether to stay in a hut, and other things I wish I knew beforehand (like bringing gaiters for the "great sand run" down).
