Yeah, but doesn't the route change year
after year, according to the amount of
snowfall, and how much ice and snow actually melt throughout the summer?

I'd love to be in "Summerland" right now!

You're right, the route will vary slightly with annual variations in snowpack and seasonal melt (I'd be interested to know how much the route shown here varies from the route my mom climbed in '74, it's probably mostly the same overall). I will make a note of potential variaitons and re-upload the image. Thanks for pointing it out.
