Condition Updates  
Route: Chi Basin

Info: Summit needs paper. Unexpected false summit leads to borderline class 2+/3 depending on your line. Water is still running after the Columbine split up to the meadow. Someone was using a chainsaw near the cabin and had several horses/donkeys 
Route: Purgatory

Info: Dry/summer conditions all the way. Lots of people in Chicago Basin, but I had the summit to myself. 
Route: Southwest Slopes

Info: No traction (crampons or micro spikes) or ice axe needed. Standard route is good to go. Chicago Basin approach from Needleton is dry and in normal summer condition save for one small area of avalanche debris, which is easily navigated/bypassed as others have noted.
