please be careful rappelling on this mountain. I climbed with my friend Mike last July and found the descent very dangerous. Four weeks later my argentinian friend Guillermo died on the descent.
I have been in july 5th 2008 on this route. We found ice (!!) on the last 2 pitches below the summit ridge. On our way down, we used 2 Abalakov on that part.
So, I will not be so ferm to say "no ice" on SE face of Arteson.
