I've been trying to get a fix on the Willow Creek cam but it's been obscured by smoke for most of the week. I spent last night looking at about a hundred recent Borah pictures for a NF shot and there were none. None the less, I did see how much snow is left on the snow bridge at CO ridge and at the top of the upper couloir that is about 25' below the summit. The conditions look very good this year. Both of those spots have been mostly dry the past couple of years and the last time it really iced up well was in 2011 which followed a good winter. I was hoping someone took a shot from Doublespring road but I haven't found one yet. I'll post it if I do.
The Hidden Couloir is usually the first one to make good ice early. It gets perpetual shade around this time of year as will the rest of the face as the days get shorter.
