“Hiked to peak on 05/10/13. New snow from night before. Peak was about 37 degrees F. Winds were >50mph. Heavy snow on last saddle before peak. With the freeze thaw, conditions of snow may be soft, or may be slick. Depends on day. Crampons not needed, but they helped on the way up just before the saddle.”

“Pallavicini couloir 8-10.5.2013 - conditions medium difficulty, melt snow, temperature close to 0°C, danger of falling heavy pieces of ice, rocks and possible small avalanches. Couloir possible to climb - start early morning to be at the saddle in the middle of Klein and Gross Glockner latest at 10-11am. After this time couloir becomes dangerous. Ice in last 2 pitches is not good, be prepared for mix climbing with lot's of water on rocks.”

“Climbed SG about 3 years ago. Be sure and request permission from the owners (the Wolfe's) prior to hiking since most of the mountain is privately owned. I approached it from the north side off Rt 64 onto Amsdad Rd. and after talking with owners drove closer to the base and the start of the trail. Very consistent grade to the summit - no special skills needed. There is a large antennae array at the top which I had concern for as far a radiation but the owner said she rides up all the time with her horse so I guess it's not an issue. You'll have a great view of Capulin just to the north and everything else within a 100 mile radius. You might make out Black Mesa in NW Oklahoma 60 miles east (another mild climb!).
