Has anyone been hiking or climbing up in the Cirque lately? I'd like to get an idea of how much snow is below the primary climbs; Lowe Route on the Question Mark Wall, and Open Book, Vertical Smile on the main wall.

From here in South Jordan, it looks like most or all of the hike in should be dry, up until you enter the Cirque.

Any insight or predictions are appreciated.

Me doing a "Vertical Limit" entrance style to the base of this climb on the Matanuska Glacier.  It's a pretty fun place for the summer time to go ice climbing on top rope.

There's quite a bit of snow below those climbs. I suggest crampons and an ice axe. There is ample amount of water in the meadows as well right now (6/27) so you do not need to melt snow.
