Climbed the Lady yesterday and got a really nice look at the boulderfield, loft couloir, and the general approach to Longs. Trail is bootpacked from the parking lot all the way past tree line. About a half mile from the Chasm Junction the snow begins to thin out and is melting away. The boulderfield is covered in snow from the privy to the Keyhole and the Loft Couloir/various other couloirs below the diamond has/have plenty of snow (I can't say on the conditions of the snow though, sorry!)

P.S. If its a warm day when you go, expect some corn and general softening everywhere. Flotation wasn't necessary but traction is definitely recommended.
