Duchess,

 

I checked it out from Orting on Friday with some high-end binoculars. Still looks nice...continuous white-snow up the gully/apron to the monster rock buttress and no apparent glare-ice or rockfall streaking. The North Mowich Icefall looked like it had recently dumped a big load onto the glacier well below the approach. There was a big shadow cast across the left handed finish on the Liberty Cap Glacier side, so I couldn't really see what it looked like.

 

I've never done Ptarmigan, but I thought I'd pass along my observations. A small group of us is heading up the Tahoma Glacier on the 5th, 6th, and 7th. Any recent info? I could only see the upper glacier obliquely, but it looked mostly smooth.
