Tenatively planning on climbing the Tangerine Trip next week, any info on the snow pack on top of the captain, the conditions on the descent slabs, or alternative walk offs?

I know a lot of the google earth pictures are a couple of years old. Google earth doesnt even show that my apartment complex exists and it has been here for 3.5 years. They definitely arent updated day by day if thats what you are thinking.
