Anyone have pics from Mt. Sill southwest towards Peak 13962?

Anyone have some recent pics from Mt Sill looking southwest towards Peak 13992 (at least I think it's 13992) that you would like to post? I am interested in snow/ice conditions towards the Polemonium Glacier. Written description welcome.

Thanks in advance.

Ritter SE glacier snow conditions

A friend and I are planning on climbing Mt. Ritter via the SE glacier in a week and a half and are considering bringing our skis. If anyone has been up there and can report on the conditions that would be great. It seems unlikely that this late in the season it would be even remotely skiable but with this crazy snow year who knows! Thanks in advance!

Snow on Mt. Goode?

We have a day to kill on the east side next Monday and are thinking of climbing Mt. Goode, from the Bishop Pass trail. Does anyone have an idea about how much snow is left? Going up from Bishop Lake the route looks like it would be a southeast aspect so hoping large parts would be melted out.

Middle Palisade Conditions?

I'm planning a trip to Middle Palisade to (hopefully) finish the CA 14ers. Has anyone been to the area recently that can report on conditions? I'd love to leave the weight of my crampons and ice axe at home or in the parking lot but don't mind carrying them if needed. Thanks in advance.
