Just wondering if anyone has a more recent idea of conditions since the last report on 9/22. Thanks!

I too am interested in any conditions regarding snow/ice with recent weather.

As of this morning, snow is visible from the San Luis Valley floor.

It's snowed each of the past two days, but much less than expected. More snow is forecast tomorrow.

Any suggestions on how dangerous this climb would be for someone with only snow "trail hiking" experience?

Not only that, I would take into account the slippery nature of crestone conglomerate rock when wet. All of those cobbles are round for a reason. They are polished.
