Good snow in TFD with short ice section (WI2/2+). Traverse rock and snow to Homestretch. Decent snow on Homestretch but softening. Keyhole descent substantially covered in snow/ice to Keyhole, especially along Narrows and Ledges. Soft snow in Trough.

Thanks for the update! Homestrech should last till then? Did you get any looks at the loft??

I think so. Just get off the summit early before it gets too soft. Snow in the Loft looked very viable for a descent as well.

how's the trail from TH to the boulder field? i'm staying up in Estes this weekend and I'm thinking of taking the girlfriend just up to get a glimpse of Long's but she wouldn't be cool with a ton of snow

Almost completely snow free, but creek-like with melt in the pm.
