CONDITION REPORT 
POISON IVY WARNING - I was there last Saturday (7/12/2014) and I and two friends got hit with poison ivy/oak/sumac/whatever. We never noticed the stuff and for me at least the blisters didn't appear for over 24 hours. The stuff was either around the trail at the base or on some of the routes as one of my friends that was affected was never at the top area. The routes we did were Longhorn/The Shield, Wall of Kaza Dum, and Dragon's Back.
