Went up the Cables Route today. Most beautiful weather I have ever experienced on a 14er. Blue skies without a single cloud all day. However, the Cables Route was littered with patches of ice. We all brought our rock shoes, and should have had boots and/or spikes or crampons. it was doable. But definitely added to the difficulty. We could see the ice from the boulderfield. so you should be able to make a smart game-time decision from there.
We were hoping the ice had melted by the time we rapped down. But it was still there and going strong.
