RMNP Conditions Report - 11.5.12

This past Monday I hiked into the Longs Peak Cirque with a friend of mine to climb some ice.  Our objective was The Flying Dutchman, but with a lack of snow in the Loft for the hike off we elected to climb some of the single pitch ice around Chasm Lake and Peacock Pool.

Here is a quick list of ice conditions for the cirque.

The Flying Dutchman - In, but not a lot of snow for the approach of the walk off (upper left corner).
Smear of Fear - Getting there, but has a little way to go before it touches down.
Crazy Train - Same

Ice below Chasm Lake - In, but thin and on a pretty serious melt freeze cycle.

Columbine Falls - In, but thin and on a pretty serious melt freeze cycle.
South Face of Mount Lady Washington - Out

Peacock Pool Ice - Very good smear in great condition on the southwest shore of the pool. Some other flows look thin, but are coming in.

Nice shot of the corner smear.

Definitely. The belayer, my friend Mike, took the shot. You can see his website at www.pickwickianadventures.com. A report about the entire day will be up soon...hopefully.
