Margherita Peak, Mt Stanley, Rwenzori Mountains of the Moon

I'm planning to trek the Mountains of the Moon at the end of July and make a bid on Mt Stanley's Margherita Peak. Anyone been up there recently and can comment on it? What's the condition of the glacier? What would you rate the rock pitches up to the summit? Any advice on how to make the slog through the bog less miserable? Recommended guides? Many thanks for your insights.
