I do recall intense amounts of bushwhacking and a difficult river crossing. From there we roped up and ascended to the top of the glacier where we established a high camp. We spent a week at the saddle waiting for the weather to allow a summit push, but were forced to retreat when our porters mutinied (several of them were half-buried by avalanches on two different occasions) But yes, it's easier than the approach to Tahquitz. The Suicide glacier has far fewer crevasses.
