A new climbing route for St. Helens? - July 20, 2012

There was a small article in this month's WTA Magazine suggesting that the Forest Service was investigating the possibility of approving a new climbing route that would start on the east side of the mountain and climb to about 7000ft with amazing views into the crater. This article about the busy 2012 climbing season also briefly mentions it. I assume that approval is not assured, and it's still many years away, but it would be a nice addition to the other two main routes. More information as I find it.
