I was up there on 7/25 and took the photos I used in this route description:

Photos 13 through 16 are pictures of the glacier then. Certainly a month is a long time, but I also can't imagine it would melt entirely even in a month.

This late in the summer there will be nothing but dirty ice and crevasses.
Some rise, some fall, some climb to get to terrapin

thanks man! yeah i'm not sure there's enough left right now to make it worth it. i thought there would be at least 50% more. maybe better off hitting up the indian peaks area. the info was much appreciated!!
