Anyone been up to the Mohawk lakes trailhead? Is the road clear all the way to the summer 4wd parking? Mark Ra

Post climb celebration drinks with a sweet line in...
I know someone recently posted this question but to reiterate has anyone been up in the area of Ypsilon lately? I'm wondering if the cornice is still on top of the couloirs and what the snowpack is like. Any beta would be great, thanks. LawHous

The runnel is huge. I didn't get the best look at the cornices, but it looks like it is still above the right branch of the Y Face pretty large, not so large above the Y Couloir or the rest of the Y Face. You can get a good look at it from trail ridge.

another day in RMNP
Anybody know anything about the climber's right start of Dreamweaver? We did it on Saturday, and it proved to be a nice mixed pitch. Complete with a chockstone and a bit of ice. Came out just below the top of the Flying Buttress, and we were able to move back onto the standard route below the first proper step. Nodin deSaillan

Same boat as everyone above. Just got back from T-ride and am looking to see what's good in the hood from 2 weeks ago for either climbing or boarding. Any thoughts on what's left? Doesn't need to be too gnarly just 5-fun. Figure worst comes to worse I can go up to the IPW (brainard, 4th) and find something, but I haven't been out in 2 weeks. Scott McMahon

Any recommendations of lines up Mt. Sopris (near Carbondale, Co) or other couloirs in the elk range and ragged mountains. I'm looking for something about 50 degree slope or less. Jordan Moore

Travis,

I climbed Dead Dog and skied Tuning Fork this past Saturday. Dead Dog was full of hard neve from the apron to the summit. Large runnels from melt made us not want to ski the couloir, but Tuning Fork was excellent.

Queen's Way still in. Looks like it's starting to thin out up top but still okay.

Pictures from Pawnee today (Audubon/Paiute,Lone Eagle/Iroquis/Mohling Traverse, partial Isabelle Glacier). Pawnee Couloirs not really in. Ski line off the ESE face in and a pair up there today.

haha you consider that "not" in? I must be willing to take crumbs. Here's me last mid-july at the base of one of the 3rd keyholes. Runout was super sketchy though. Thanks for the beta!!

Anyone seen if the crooked or coney couloirs are looking like?


Keyhole.

Climbed Dragons Tail Tuesday, there was still lots of snow. There's also still a big cornice on the right exit. I didn't ski it, just went up and down the other side. Ilene

Ha I didn't realize there is a named Pawnee Couloir, but that is in and so are the Keyholes (SE lines). More of a pleasant glissade, ski slope, dance floor, or pool table than a bonafide couly though. The other couloirs hitting between Little Pawnee and Pawnee are mostly melted out or aren't worth it at $10 a pop. Ryan Marsters

Yay I believe they are only called the keyholes. Might have to take a stroll back!

llene: Did dragon's tail have a runnel through it? Suncupped or chunky? Wondering if it would still be enjoyable as a ski descent. Thanks. Devan Johnson

The DT looks done. Big runnels and unstable randklufts at the constrictions and sides of the couloir.

What's still in this late in the season? (Front range) maybe tuning fork? Think north/ north west aspects would be better. Thanks. Devan Johnson

I think we are going up to Pawnee / Brainard tomorrow. Based on the reports above and other places it looks to be worth the hike in for some nice corn turn. Nothing to make a TGR video, just 5 fun. I'll post up with pics.

I found a super nice ice axe at the base of the DT the other day. I would be stoked to get this back to the owner:) Taylor-B.
