I climbed Taylor Glacier back in June '09 and opted to take a belay at the top because the snow was not supportive enough. It would be pretty spooky being high on the glacier this time of year unprotected.

Thanks for the photos Andy. Helps us realize just how serious the climb was for those involved.
