What shape do you think Gilbert would be in right now? The approach might be less tedious with snow covering the boulders?

As of July 2, Kindergarten Chute is starting to form and Checkered Demon is partially melted out (and looks mighty ugly)

FYI. Mt Gilbert is done for the year. It is totally melted out and nasty in the middle section, which was just thin last year. Mt Thompson has lots of crevasses, several quite massive, on the snow field/glacier leading up to the couloirs. We didn't end up climbing the couloirs for various reasons, but it is questionable as to whether they even go to the top. I really hope it snows next winter!

Anyone go up to Palisade Glacier for Labor Day weekend? I was thinking about trying to climb the V-Notch or U-Notch next weekend but I'm hoping they don't resemble the North Face couloirs on Norman Clyde Peak, which were ugly and full of mud on Sunday. If anyone climbed either Notch or even looked at them let me know what you saw. Thanks!

Has anyone attempted or been near Mt. Emerson North Couloir and/or Checkered Demon couloir (Peak 13112') in the last couple of weeks? Is there a climable snow/ice line that leads nearly to the top? If the routes have reasonable ice coverage, I'd like to climb them next weekend. Looking for a partner if anyone is interested?

Anybody been in a couloir lately? I'm going to climb the V-Notch in late September. Hoping for quality ice-cube-blue ice.

THe Dana and north peak couloirs are looking to be in good shape by september. All were mainly snow with small patches of ice starting to show as of mid August. Anybody have any info/ pics of the palisades this year?
