Me hugging the summit block of Snowmass Mountain after a winter ascent, my 2nd attempt
Anyone have info on which crags/areas are dry right now? Flatirons are still looking fairly snowy. Anyone been out to Eldo, maybe Wind Tower? Or Clear Creek?
Thanks!

As a general rule in Colorado: for most snow storms, if you've waited one day, you've already waited long enough (for cragging). The rock dries fast here.

I tend to get outside all winter, and snowstorms are only a problem if they are actively happening. They fade into irrelevance pretty quick in our semi arid state. On south facing crags, the rock can be dry in hours (so long as you aren't in the runoff path from the top). The ground may be soggy, but rarely the rock.

I also like to get out on melt days and see where those water streaks come from!
