I work on Cache Glacier every year, measuring its snowpack etc. In travelling to Gunsight Notch most of these years it seems like it is getting tougher to get to the notch itself with less snow providing easy access by August. The rock underneath the snow ramp is not pleasant. When was the last time you were on this route?
Thanks for the update; I'd heard rumors about it. I haven't been there for 15+ years, I guess. I'll quote your message in the Mixup page, and if you want to edit or elaborate, feel free. And if you've been on the route itself, I'd love to see some photos on the face added.
