Hillhag & Slowhead finished the 14ers on July 2, 2012, with El Diente as the last. The Kilpacker route is in perfect condition, no ice or snow, of course. We found on the descent that, while we had to come down the grey gully (beneath the organ pipes), we did not have to cross the grey talus field. There is a nicely cairned zigzagging path, pretty well-defined, to the right (west) of the grey talus. Had we found that on the way up (where it would be to the LEFT of the grey talus), we would have avoided some rock-hopping and scree.

Anyway, the mountain is in great shape, and we've completed all the 14ers, in eight years. Not bad for some old folks.
