Gannett and Granite in september ?

we're looking to go for Gannett and Granite this summer ...

our team of five has a common open window of dates in mid-september ... kind of late season for these peaks ?

friends have said that Gannett's bergschrund should be wide open ("impassable") by then ... and that we might experience snow on Granite's final approach (not enough to place pickets, but enough to make the final climb kind of unhappy meal) ...

Top 4th class Wind Rivers climbs

I'm doing a few days of 4th class to low 5th in the winds July 18-20. Outside of the cirque, what is some of your favorite concentration of this type of climbing? I'll be solo, unless someone decides to join me, so I'm trying to decide on a good central place. I know Titcomb basin has a high concentration but with my limited time I'd like to avoid the trek in.

Wind Rivers, Clear Creek Trail Conditions

Has anyone been to the Clear Creek trail off of the Highline Trail in the northern Wind RIver Mountains? On the page, from 2010, it says that past the natural bridge the trail is made very difficult due to deadfall. Does anyone know if it has gotten better in the 4 years since then or if there has been any maintenance? We want to take this route to Downs Mountain as part of a 4-day ...
