2014-10-05  Route: South Slopes
Info: French‘s S Slopes is pretty much clear of snow. Some snow down on the road to the mine. No traction necessary. Traverse to Frasco BM is mostly clear of snow as well. Few patches, but only a couple inches deep. Didn‘t go over to Casco, but the ridge between Frasco/Casco looked pretty snowy.

2012-09-15  Route: Standard
Info: No snow on entire route - including Frasco BM and Casco. Water level was low enough on first creek crossing for at least an Xterra, an FJ Cruiser, and a 4Runner. None of them made it past the 2nd crossing.

2012-04-21  Route: East Ridge/East Slopes
Info: Was able to drive my 2WD Toyota Camry Wagon all the way to the Jeep road that heads up the valley below Elbert and French (off the N Halfmoon Creek Road. This spot is within a half mile of the higher Mt. Massive TH. 4WD can get all the way there to the Mt. Massive TH. Some snow on this narrow jeep road....we didn‘t use snowshoes though. Climbed directly up the steep E ridge of French. Not much snow on the lower slopes but last weekends storm dumped a few inches above 12,000 feet...drifts were at most 1 foot deep. Very nice day with a little wind but bot unbearable. Oklahoma looked snowier than when I did it 2 weeks ago.
