The past few days have provided snow melting and changing conditions after an early storm. Conditions in the high mountains remain challenging, although climbers are successfully summiting. In order to safely and successfully climb routes currently, climbers should be ready for significant snow and ice remaining in shady areas and chimneys, despite exposed areas being clear and dry. Depending on skill and experience, this may warrant climbers carrying boots, ice axe, and even crampons.
