Here is another shot from the same spot, with my SD Origami 2, on a solo trip three weeks after the above posted shot.

Are there running water there now?
My friend's picture from this past weekend shows that lake frozen.

Hyadventure wrote:I was up there June 4-6 to climb N. Pal. The trail was mostly snow free up to Third Lake. We crossed a large snow bridge (200’ long) at the mouth Third Lake and climbed the couloir behind Temple Crag. By the time we descended the snow bridge was 50% gone and what was left was 80% collapsed. I sure it’s gone now.
Travel on the glacier and the U-notch couloir was a little soft but not too bad. The U-notch firmed-up near the top, but I was still comfortable climbing without rope. Snow bridges over the bergshrund are thin. My partner postholed through (didn’t fall in) but I got a report of another climber (roped) falling in.
I’ll be back up July 4 to attempt Starlight
