Solo mission for Crestone Peak via Cottonwood Creek was a success. A truly wonderful day. Otina/Kevin's group trail was still there for the first 2 miles (I thank you kindly for this) after that it was all me.

Snow was pretty good in the Red Gully. Some spots in the middle of the couloir that I shyed away from.

1st Pic - Red Gulley
2nd - look up at the bottom (4th class rock bands were negotiated in the bottom of the couloir but after that it was snow sailing)
4th - Summit Ridge

If anyone would like more info or pics I would be glad to provide them. Humboldt looked kinda dry as was the traverse to Needle. Kit Ave pretty loaded.
