|Peak:||Longs Peak (14er)|
|Date of Information:||03/12/2011|
Snow shoes were NOT needed to reach Black Lake, or to gain the upper cirque. The Trough has no set 'staircase' to the Narrows. Crampons were used for the entire route. Ledges look stable. Homestrech was fairly dry, not near enough to ski or board. West winds continue to scour the peak, depositing most new snow on lower elevations to the west of the mountain.
Ice in Glacier Gorge is in full as ever.
