Little new to report...

Updated conditions are posted, but other than hearing "we made the summit via ?X?X? route," most things seem to be straightforward.

I've been getting a number of climbing reports, with most climbers commenting on the weather conditions they experienced. Although we appreciate this, it is even more useful for prospective climbers to receive comments on snow/ice conditions and crevasse situations, since these don't generally change quite as fast as the weather! For the most part, it seems that many of the standard routes are in fine climbing shape. As always, weather and conditioning are key factors in whether you summit or not.
