See may 27th post in the ranger blog.  http://tetonclimbing.blogspot.com/  Snow is melting fast up there but an ice axe and crampons are still needed for any and all approaches up high.

From the ranger blog homepage referenced above, click the links for "mountain pass conditions" and "canyon and trail conditions," which tend to get general information before they've updated the climbing route info.

I posted some photos and links to a Teton condition thread on MP recently, but damned if I can find it with the  "improved" search function.

Yep.

From the ranger blog:

Lower Saddle Approach 2017

June 4, 2017
Upper Moraine and Lower Saddle Headwall.  Garnet approach: Mostly dry to the 1.7 junction, 100% snow approx 3/4 of a mile below the 3 mile junction.

I was up Garnet Canyon this past weekend.  It is 100% snow just below the Platforms and up.  Irene's would be climbable, but descent would require an ice ax.
