Conditions on Humbolt????

Planning on tackeling Humbolt East Ridge this weekend. Has anyone been out there as of late that could offer any conditions?
Thanks!

Yeah I did but I was hoping for someone who lived nearby to let me know if this last storm dumped a ton of snow or not. We are still digging our way out in WY.

Have you checked the local SNOTEL data?

Pardon my ignorance but where do you find that? I have only done a handful of winter/spring climbs.

Coxie, you can find the SNOTEL by going to the Links tab here on 14ers found on the homepage. Click -> Links (scroll down to Colorado Related section), Click -> Colorado SNOTEL Data.
You want the South Colony site data.

I don't know how much snow is on Humboldt but the new snow from yesterday dropped 12+ inches at the Rainbow Trail.
