This looks like an old photo, but not before 1978. I hiked it that year and there were no pickets to hold on to. Plenty of ice though, since it was Sept. 29.

I think this is the Summer Solstice in 1992. We used crampons for a part of this ascent due to the amount of snow and ice. Temperatures were still in the 20's in the morning.
