Curious about conditions on the sherpa glacier, and what the approach to it via mountaineer creek might look like? Anyone been in the zone?

Also wondering what the passage looks like to go over the top of sherpa, and down the cascadian..

Thanks much!

Thanks, Pete. It sounds like it's a good time ski this through-route, in spite of the lack of frozen nights..

A friend and I climbed Full N. Ridge yesterday approaching from the North and descending the Sherpa. The glacier is in excellent condition still. A super easy end run around the bergschrund-skier's right- is still possible. No rappel shenanigans needed! Gorgeous day in perfect weather with no one around!
