Does anyone have any update on conditions in RMNP around Longs Peak. Specifically has anyone been up Mount Lady Washington or up to the Chasm Lake and seen Martha? I know it's early in the year, but it's been an odd year.

if you dont get a good answer here, it would be worth asking on 14ers.com too.

Was up on Alexander's a week ago. Martha was very snowy.I'm not sure how this recent warmer weather has affected things up there, but I would think that it will a lot better later in the season when that turns to potential AI.

Everything up high is buried. It has been warm but everything above 9000' has been getting a lot of snow. Colorado is currently at 100% of the annual snow pack and it is only the middle of February.

Yaroslav, to confirm what C Ross said, everything is pretty filled in. The first pitch was completely snow covered. There was a bit of anemic ice on the second pitch. The chockstone was completely filled with snow, so we had to excavate a tunnel. The fourth pitch was completely dry. We did not go to Broadway. Snow on Lamb's Slide was not too bad.
Have fun!
