Longs on Thursday and current conditions

Postby skystrings » Mon Oct 08, 2012 2:33 pm

I will be in the area on Thursday and was thinking about attempting Longs. Does anyone have any current conditions or is anyone else planning in climbing Thursday? I know conditions come and go but, just curious if anyone was up there over the weekend or today?

Dang, I'm going to just miss you. I'm hoping to do Longs on Saturday.

Good Luck!

Skibrec- Let me know if your interested in climbing longs on Thursday. Not sure if you remember me but, I climbed Bierstadt with you and your wife several years back. I'm looking for someone interested in the Keyhole route. I've climbed it before but, it's always good to have company.

Keep me updated. I am 90% in. Though I only have an ice axe, no crampons.

I'm going to check conditions tomorrow and see how the fire is effecting things. Talked to a park ranger tonight and he said longs should be safe. I also want to check route conditions as well
