Longs Peak Climbing Notes

Asif Waziri from UNITED STATES writes:

It took me 3.5 hours to cross Boulder Field valley last Wednesday (during the storm). The rocks and boulders are covered with ice and snow. Makes for precarious foot stepping into the snow covered gaps between the rocks. Snow in gullies was about knee deep, in some locations hip deep.
