Comments: We climbed the south face on 8/22/14 and the route did not come into the sun until after 12:30. We approached from the parking area by traversing the rim to the ridge that extends out towards the towers. From the North side of the ridge, fix a single 70(or 60?) to get down to a point where you can scramble down and traverse over to the saddle.

Comments: I was wondering if anyone knows how the snow is melting off. I am hoping to be up there the last week of June.

Comments: The crack is wider now. The pillar is slowly falling away and climbers will notice that their grabers fit into the crack way more than they used to.
