Summitted Longs today from Glacier Gorge. The trench to Black Lake wasn't hard to follow, and is now refreshed. Ran into a skier at Black Lake that helped improve it as well. From Black Lake I stayed in snowshoes until reaching the bottom of the trough. Going up the trough/narrows I didn't use any traction, but there was enough snow and ice on the homestretch that I used crampons, and left them on all the way to the bottom of the trough.

Talking about running water? No, everything I came across was frozen.
