Sorry, lelf! The latest I have been in that area is June (did Garibladi in June one year). Lots of really crumbly rock!!! I have done stuff in the Tantalus Range in July/Aug and that was fine. I don't expect there to be much avalanche risk at that time of year. Unfortunately I can't speak to glacier conditions where you want to go in August. You may want to check the BCMC forum and see if someone there has more beta: http://bcmc.ca/forum/
