So little snow

I thought Glacier Peak was 100% snow clad with glaciers like Rainier. Looks like you could just stay on rock if you wanted to.

Re: So little snow

In September you can literally go right up the dirt scramble to the summit from the gap and not touch any snow. In fact some choose the Disappointment Peak route in order to avoid rping up on the glacier. That route is much tougher but you do avoid glaciers and crevasse dangers.
