Half Dome: Spring and fixed approach lines

Anyone know if the spring is running?  Also are the fixed lines up the slabs still there?

If I can add on to this, are the fixed approach lines really on a 50 degree slabby section?  Do they require jumars or prusiks to get thru them?

The 1st line is on a slab. The 2nd line is fairly vert, but only 20 feet high or so. Flakes.
The 3rd & last line is also on a slab. With a load on, I'd hook in to jumar.....makes it much easier, & then you'll probably live.
At least, until you get on the Wall. Then you're gonna die for sure.
I wouldn't expect much from the spring this late in the year, but maybe?
Good luck, me hearties!
