I didn't attempt Longs today, but thought I could share some photos of various approaches.

Despite the snow yesterday, the trail from the Rangers station is very well packed and no flotation/spikes are necessary. This is true to the Keyhole and also towards the Loft. (I went to Chasm Lake, so not sure how the base of the Loft Couloir is)

Attached some photos of Lambs slide. A couple of people skied the lower third.

I ascended the Camel route - see my conditions report for Mount Lady Washington.
