I assume Jon would be referring to the South Ridge when he says there is no snow on it. Even on a high snow year, that route will be snow-free by this time so I am not surprised that it is dry.

There are almost certainly some small snow patches in bowls on the west side, and the climb from that direction is an enjoyable class two outing that is rarely done.

The Collier will have a large schrund by this time of year, but it can usually be passed on rock.

Quite right, Iain, I mean the Prouty. It is a nice climb, starting from the lake set in the moraine below the Prouty. Easy travel to the schrund, where you step into a moat and climb a short pitch of rock to regain the snow, and then you complete the climb on steep snow directly above that big yawner.
