Still Here
been scared and battered. My hopes the wind done scattered. Snow has friz me, Sun has baked me,
Looks like between 'em they done Tried to make me
Stop laughin', stop lovin', stop livin'-- But I don't care! I'm still here!

Thx Greg-

I was referencing this gem of a thread initially, but missed the axe and crampons part. Will look it over later.

Looking for information on Guanella Pass from the Grant side. Is the winter closure at Duck Lake? How close is the winter closure to the summer TH? Conditions?

I skinned to the summit of Bierstadt today and snowboarded down. We approached from the Georgetown side so I do not know how low the closure is on the other side. It is probably longer than the Georgetown side approach right now. Here is a link to the snow/avalanche condition report I filed with the CAIC from today's trip up Bierstadt if anyone is interested in more detailed information; https://avalanche.state.co.us/obs/obs_report.php?obs_id=19636 . The summit ski descent is still in if you do not mind a little Davenporting and billygoating. I think the snow may disappear quickly though, so get it while the getting is good!
