Thinking about doing some scrambling on the first and second flatiron. Has anyone been up there recently that can say anything about the conditions? Looks clear from town but I don't want to encounter surprise ice or anything while I'm up there.

Did Freeway, Baker's Way, North Arête, and Southwest Face yesterday. Mostly clear. Ice and snow were easily avoidable. There should be even less today. The trails have icy spots.

I was on the first today. Trails are icy/slushy and slippery in places. Had to walk through a bit of snow at the base, what little is left of the snow on the actual climbing is easily avoidable. Super windy at the top today.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
