Summited on July 25, party of five. Conditions good, though hard half-hour of rainfall early the prior evening left some significant water in the Hourglass; also heard a big rockfall in middle of night on the ridge opposite Little Bear's west ridge, which made us worry a bit about looser than even usual conditions in the gully. Monday was a good day, saw only three total other climbers, started at five, summitted by 8:30. All dry, other than the aforementioned leftover rain runoff. Ropes are solid for first 100 feet, but frayed at bottom. Beware: there is a bear in the vicinity who has developed an interest in tent contents.
