Any chance we could get another conditions update from someone? I'm on the fence about driving down tonight and would love to see something that tips me one way or the other. Thanks!

Huge thanks. I'm looking to head down there myself for an attempt at the ED/Wilson traverse on Sat. Accending Kilpacker, descending to Navajo. Any and all info would be appreciated.

Excellent work Ken! If you ever need an east aspect shot of Evans from Denver, be sure to let me know :lol: But seriously, we appreciate your scouting in the San Juans.

Looks like a few of us will be down there. A group of 6 of us are heading out on Friday from Co. Springs. We are going to try the traverse on Saturday as well. Stay safe and see you out there.

Big thanks to all for the beta.

Looks like there will be a few of us out there this weekend.

Also, in this webcam El Diente should be in the middle if it is visible.

Summitslayer sent me this pic from his phone this morning, its Mt Wilson from Rock of Ages Saddle as of about 9am today. I also got an update that Wilson Peak is dry all the way up.
