That's what my climbing instructor told me.


It was good this summer... 8/19. The big crevasse/burgshrund thing at the top of the headwall was a bit of a surprise and unnerving, but everything else was very easily passable

FWIW, much the same yesterday (9/2), except several crevasses now open across the headwall, and the one at the top is messy. Suncups have turned the whole section into stairs. It's getting a bit thin, but we managed to stay on snow from camp to summit.
