Does any one have any beta on the approach up lone Pine creek to Iceberg lake. I will be there next week. Looking for some info on current conditions.

I don't, but usually SuperTopo is the best place to get that beta-

Actually, the http://www.summitpost.org or http://www.whitneyportalstore.com/ are most frequently updated and generally have better info.

I'm sure the creek is raging and there will be some snow left around higher up, but probably not too much along the approach to the lake. The lake was apparently still frozen and surrounded by snow about a week ago, but it's been hot, so I don't doubt it's now thawed and would guess there are probably some dry campsites nearby. The snow that's left will be really soft and wet.
