Hi there! Does anyone have some info on how the standard approach from the west is looking right now (pole creek to titcomb)? My best friend and I are planning to climb it in a few weeks and was hoping to get any/all intel! Thanks in advance:) Jul 9, 2017

Hey there,

There's still going to be A LOT of snow this year in the range in mid July. We've had a long winter! :( So it's gonna be a messy approach. BUT, as a local I would say it is definitely managable. :) Apr 15, 2011
My wife and myself would like to do gannett in middle July. I know we could handle the approach but we do not have any glacier experience. Would it be reasonable to attempt it anyway. Apr 15, 2011
