Greetings! I will be living out of my van here in Colorado for most of this month and May.

Any tips on which alpine objectives I should be looking at? Right now a couple that I've heard are "in" and are totally up my alley would be The Notch on Long's and the Dragontail Couloir on Flattop.

Any similar type climbs that are either in or should be expected to be in next month?

Super excited to climb in the rockies! :)

Your suggestions are appreciated.

Dragonstail will be in great for the next month or so, BUT watch out for new snowfall like what is scheduled to hit tomorrow...

It can slide.......

Climbed Martha today. It was in good condition. Plenty of ice. Lots of melting going on, so it should get better, especially if this weekend's snow is followed by some sunny days. CBW

I've heard that the North Face Couloirs of Flattop are also looking good (same issues if there is new snowfall).

Anyone know what Skywalker looks like?
