My buddy and I are contemplating a trip to Granite next week (Aug 30 to ?). Has anyone been up the SW Couloir recently? Any information is appreciated. Thanks

I'm planning to climb Villard this weekend. I don't think the couloir is visible from there, but I'll update you on what I see.

Also will be heading out there in the next couple weeks - any updated conditions beta would rock.

Perhaps a bit late, but talked to some climbers on 9/3 who reported that any snow/ice remaining is easily avoided without gear.
