Hi,

does anybody have any information on the current conditions of these routes on Thunderbolt? Is it icy? How are the bergschrunds?

Thanks.

We just got back from the U-Notch and although I didn't play close attention to Thunderbolt from what I recall the schrund looked to be in good condition and very passable and it appeared to be all snow. I'll look at my pictures tonight and see if I have any that show the route. The U-notch had a lot of ice and the schrund is barely passable, however as you know Thunderbolt doesn't receive nearly the same sun exposure as the U-notch.
