gully has recently had a large slide, and there are smaller slides that have occurred on the road to blue lakes. the current snowpack and conditions makes it easy to climb up to the gully on the hardened avy debris on the lower flatter section, and on the rocks on the left side of the upper section. the gully is not holding much snow after the slide, and the current snow pack is a half inch or so of suncrust, and sugar snow underneath. we used snowshoes for part of the hike.

road is plowed to the Monte Cristo TH, and the road to blue lakes is snowmobile packed most of the way with a few bare spots.

I'm thinking about Cristo in April and wonder what it looks like now. If you don't have photos then maybe comments on how it compares to http://14ers.com/images/peakstatus/reports/Tenmile/13_201302051643051.jpg from http://14ers.com/php14ers/peakstatus_entry.php?recnum=2073 ?
Thanks,
