Successful climb up LBP yesterday. The standard route is completely snow free, however, the hourglass had a running trickle of water on both sides of the gully. It wasn't really avoidable and gave my partner and I fits climbing up the steep rock. There are two ropes in the glass, One blue rope has some knicks and cuts while a lighter green rope was more sturdy, but was not as long. I also noticed several individuals (around 9) made it to the summit, but no more than 3 (including myself) used the standard route. Ask away if you have questions.
