A good solid trench exists all the way up to the tree line. Wind-swept with some cohesive slabs afterwards, no issues to the summit. No significant snow accumulation on 23 December daytime. More forecasted for tonight.

Did you need Microspikes? Doing Elbert in February. Will be my first Winter 14er attempt since Quandary in Oct. 2009 (didn't make to the summit because of weather). Looking forward to Mt. Elbert.
