We went up the iron gates to Meeker Ridge and Mt Meeker to SE Longs then went through the loft to Longs then Storm Peak. All the routes were dry and clear. The route up the loft looked clear (we did not come up that way), although there is still some snow in the area. The park ranger (search and rescue) recommended this route as an alternative to the key hole route if storms moved in the area (we had a 50% chance of storms) as it is a much faster route down.
