Anyone go up mt moran in the last week that has some beta on if the spring is still running?

It was running as of 2 weeks ago on the 2nd of August. Lots of water running all day. Best spot is just a minute walk from the highest campsites. The water gets lost in the boulder field lower down next to some of the other sites.

Was able to get H20 off a trickle of a spring using a candy bar wrapper yesterday. Not sure if it's the spring that normally runs as it was our first time up there. It's located 200 yards skiers right of the upper sites in the boulder field, and I wouldn't expect it to ";run"; (see ";trickle"; comment) much longer.

What is reccomended, hiking up water or trying to pull some from the falling ice runoff?

I did the falling ice run off, a long and thankless trek but at least it's something to do - that high camp is uneventful
