Two climbers - fifty years apart - admire the view of Sentinel Peak and Le Conte Glacier from Spider-Formidable Col. The Le Conte Glacier covered roughly the same area in 2003 as it did in 1953 and additionally had a small snout extending over the cliffs on the east side. The narrow snout extended to the valley bottom in the 1980s but has been receding since then.
