I climbed Little Bear yesterday. There is a snow apron right under the hour glass. You can easily get around on either side or just walk right through the slush if you don't mind getting your feet wet. There is a rivulet of wather running right down the middle under the rope. There was not a hint of ice or Verglas anywhere.

This is as good as LB gets in the summer. Keep in mind it is still Little Bear and there are tons of loose rock everywhere. I would not climb it with anyone above me. Yesterday I had the whole place to myself.

I have lots of pictures I will post in a report sometime next week when I'm back in civilisation.
