I'm hoping to climb Notchtop on Saturday the 19th. Anyone interested?

Also, anyone been up there lately and know the conditions?

Thanks,
Scott

Hmm, I'd imagine not much is in but am considering taking a hike up there this weekend. I can let you know what I see.

Yeah, I'm a little concerned it's bare but I heard from a guy who heard from someone else that "it's looking good."

Despite the high quality of that intelligence, if you head up there I'd appreciate any info you can pass along. Thanks!

Anyone been up to RMNP lately? Is it as dry as it seems like it would be?

I saw some great pictures on facebook. Actually thought of this post when I saw them and figure it was you. Heres a quote:

"We climbed the the north east face of notch top on Nov 10th, it is in, but thin. The first pitch goes as a straight rock /mixed pitch, it is pretty full value without any ice but awesome. The cornices above are totally safe now but still pretty big considering that we have almost no snow, i can see why that thing gets so dangerous mid winter. I hear alexanders is in ( i saw some photos from the people that a climbed it and it looks thin but doable )."
