Hello, I was wondering at what point in the year skywalker generally becomes unclimbable?

I climbed it last year in mid July, totally fine and likely still doable for a bit afterwards. A couple mixed moves to make the Leia exit and that was all.

However with the melt off the way it has been this year I bet it's not any fun any more.

Any danger of wet snow slides this time of year? I'm going trekking/camping in the indian peaks in two weeks and I'm wondering if it's worth bring the crampons/axe with me. Also, what time of year does snow start accumulating again out there? (I'm new to the area and not a skier, haha).
