Are these two climbs still doable right now?From the valley floor the snow level looked kind of low for Irene's but not quite sure. Does anyone have any current info?

Looks like they've got quite a bit of snow lately. Here's a webcam shot of the Grand from the west.

Has anyone done the walk-off for Guides' Wall? Wondering what class of climbing (4th?, 3rd?, low 5th?) is the ledge between the top of the optional 7th pitch and the SW couloir. Some details ...

"A Climber's Guide To The Grand Tetons" indicates that one can do an easy 7th pitch (5.5) and the follow a ledge with significant exposure back to the SW couloir, then descend the coulior via steep trail on the west side of the drainage.

Any other comments on this walk-off would be appreciated (as well as how early to get up for a mid-summer climb of Guides Wall!).
