Winter closure still in effect (my guess next weekend or weekend after that). Bring a bike and save yourself 3 miles of road.

No snowshoes needed. Line softened up fast. Dicker's Peck to Navajo Summit negligible snow. We road the ridge over to Niwot and descended from there but Airplane Gully looks snowy and easy.

E aspects tend to be soft when you hit the base at 915 AM

is shoshoni couloir that line on the southish face, the one with the melted out section at the very beginning?

Looks like 4 main ones. Melted one apparently fun on left. Center one kinda meh 40-50 until an awesome redeeming 55ish(?) and cornice top out, right one snakes right then left (looks cool, top melted out), and one far right that hits near the summit.

Summer: Little Pawnee to Pawnee (4th?) to Shoshoni (2nd) to Apache (url= - skip the Rook unless we can interest a 5.10+ leader FURTHERMORE) to Nav/Niwot. Not complete without Dicker's.
