We'd hoped to climb the Polish Glacier, but the route was far icier than we expected. Our gear was insufficient, and the wind was relentless. You want to do the Polish Glacier? Bring ice climbing gear. Still, we had a great summit day via the Traverse. Oddly, there was no wind on the summit. Crampons in the Canaleta made for an "easy" waltz up hardpack snow, though I expect there's only scree there now.
