Aerial West Side Reference Images

The following images were taken on Wednesday, August 7th, 2019 and can be used for reference for snow levels, identifying major crevasses, bergschrunds and terrain features around the west side of the mountain.  Keep in mind, many of the non-standard upper mountain routes are out of season due to glacial features, rockfall etc..
