A few snow piles below treeline then clears up - no spikes needed. Snow avoidable in Boulderfield. Ledges extremely icy in many spots- care advised. Trough snow packed with boot path. Narrows had large area coved by recent slide, icy in many spots. Homestretch had many sections covered in veriglasss with snow near top. Used microspikes down and none up, no ice axe.

Wow, are conditions really THAT good on Longs this early in the year? I was thinking of doing Shavano/Tabeguache in June, but maybe I'll shoot for Longs Peak!
