The Viper, The Mayhem, and I climbed the Crestones Monday. We did both in one day. We hiked down to Broken Hand pass, and then went over to the Peak. The Needle is in great shape, and there is still a large cairn in the switch section from the East to the West gully. Though, it was hard to know the correct place to go over. As for the Peak, there is still a few snow fields, but mostly avoided. On the way up, we went to the left of the snow field, but on the way down the left, which was the better side. There is a lot of water running down, but all of it can be avoided. Everything is in great shape.
