|Peak:||Longs Peak (14er)|

Summited today after a failed attempt two weeks ago. Things are looking pretty good. Almost no snow until after the Keyhole. Then really the only measurable snow was in the trough. Trough has pretty significant snow on the right side, but can be avoided by hiking left. Microspikes and trekking poles were very helpful for the descent. Some small pockets of snow have become pretty slick from the many people hiking and packing it down. The Narrows and Homestretch were completely free of snow.
