This is from a canyoneering group, but:

FYI - A recent report (last Friday) from Borah - the route is clear of all snow except for the snow bridge.

I did it Friday 7/14 and that's correct too. We had axes and microspikes. I'd imagine you'd still need them. I've got pics. Holler at me if you still wanna check it out.

Climbed today (7/28). Also would echo recommendation of axe and spikes for safety.
