Mt Democrat West face

Planning to come to CO for few days in April - does Mt Democrat West face look climbable this (snowy) year? Any opinions / photos to share? Thanks!

Here is a crop of Democrat's west face from the northern Sawatch on Sunday. It looks reasonably snowy. Someone else should hopefully have a better/closer photo.

Any day in the mountains from which you come home tired, dirty, hungry, thirsty, with a little too much sun and in one piece is nothing short of perfect.

Under the place where you can write your post, look for the entitled, "Upload attachment", Click, "Browse" find the file, and then press, "Add the file" there's probably a file size limit you need to be worried about.

Either that, or throw them up on some other site and just link to it. (http://imgur.com)
