Elbert conditions?

Postby trailboss88 » Fri Oct 26, 2012 11:49 am

I'd like to climb Mt. Elbert next week before I head to California to climb Whitney. Anyone been there lately? I was wondering if I'm going to need my snowshoes.

Did it Oct 20. No need for snowshoes or even gaiters. Ice Trekkers were very helpful. I think there's been more snow this week though.

Summited today under ideal conditions! Only scattered patches of light snow, nothing hiking boots couldn't handle. The rest of the range looks about the same.
