Winter conditions on Dead Dog. 8"+ of unconsolidated snow in numerous areas. Made it half way up the line before sizeable slough let go 20 above us. 2-3 weeks easily needed to lower avy conditions drastically especially with storm coming in tomorrow.

Parked at the I-70 lot but 4 cars were able to drive higher (max perhaps 1.75 miles up the 3 mile road to the summer TH).

Sorry my camera blows.

Was very suprising. Talked with some skiers at the base of the climb after we descended and they told us Bierstadt was a night and day difference between Torreys. At least theres snow in the mountains!!
