The webcam is good and they seem to do that route more than anyone.

As of Saturday, a few small patches between upper boyscout and Iceberg, still snow from Iceberg Lake until 100' below the notch. Final 400 had no snow but ice in the middle of first chute, easily avoidable on the left or right.

Passed through NF on Saturday... not much snow until just below Iceberg. The creek/outlet crossings are annoying at best; be prepared to either get shoes wet or fight willows.

Hamik, I am the one you chatted with at Iceberg. I got a picture of you and your partner heading for the pass:
