All the verglass is gone, route in summer condition. As for the standard route, the snow crossing is still there and will be for a while. I want to take it as an opportunity to remind people to take the comfort and experience level of others into account when posting condition updates for these more popular class 1 and 2 14ers. Almost everyone I passed on the snow crossing was very nervous, moving very slowly, or straight up scared shitless. If I had the experience of the average G&T hiker I would probably want micro spikes. Had a conversation with a guy about his frustration at people saying routes are good to go with no traction even though there's snow when for him it's not true (quandary, Evans and Spaulding from S.L. Beginners look at these condition updates as well.
