Climbed in one day from bottom of road. Winter gear no longer necessary, no need for microspikes or ice axe on Blanca. Few small snow fields can easily be walked across or avoided above 13,000'. Anyone attempting to drive Lake Como Road - 18+" spruce down across Jaws 3, will need chainsaw and wench to remove. Tree down across road (fell on Sat 5/26) just above Lake Como, probably can be moved by 4-5 guys. Very windy, smoky, and dusty, no views.

I saw the blow down on Sunday and I noticed it has some interesting binds on it. Whoever attempts to remove it should be an experienced sawyer.
