2012-05-05 Went to Radiobeacon Mountain on Saturday, May 5, 2012. The East facing and some North facing slopes were in excellent condition from the summit to the lake. We were able to drive up the Rollins Pass Road - East to just a few hundred feet short of the parking elevation 10457‘ detailed in Hadda and Faughey‘s "Front Range Descents". We were stopped by a still frozen rock hard drift of snow that only partially covered the road, which could have down some damage to the vehicle had we driven over it. After talking with some folks in the afternoon, the road isn‘t passable much father than this point, even when the snow drifts have softened. Sog-Nar
