Just received a fresh batch of long-sleeve Patagonia Capilene 1 synthetic shirts, printed with the 14ers.com logo. If you're interested in just a cotton t-shirt, I have new, blue shirts plus some of the older styles.

I started off from around Devils Playground (where you cross Pikes Highway on the crosswalk at about 12,950 ft) & the conditions seemed good for most part. There were some paths that were damp & had a little snow on them, but most of it you could go around. As you begin to get up into the scrambling section, there may be some unavoidable patches of ice & snow. I would bring micros just in case...I kind of wish I did, but the traction on my boots seemed to work well enough as well as trying to find alternative rocks to scramble along.
