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.

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!!
