Anybody have any info on the current conditions of the SE Glacier route or North Face route from Banner-Ritter saddle? Planning on going up this weekend.

Thanks for the link! I wish those pictures were taken under better circumstances. Tragic about Matthew Greene

Did you make it up? How are the conditions. I am looking at going up in a couple weeks. Is the glacier passable without ice tools, will crampons get the job done. Thanks :)
