We camped at Lake Como 7/31 and climbed LB 8/1. It hailed on the 3 peaks night of 7/30. Per reports Blanca had a foot deep in spots for hikers 7/31. The creeks are running very high and the marsh around the lake is saturated. We needed to use a log crossing above the standard 4wd road crossing on the lake como approach, as it was impassable.

The good news is we ran in to no hail or ice on LB on 8/1. The hourglass was very wet as expected so it was nice to have 2 ropes in good condition, especially for the descent.
