Just in case you havent checked on Dav's progress lately, I'll let you know he has had a epic week of ski descents. Now all he's got left is Longs peak, he's probibly skinning up the approach right now. Here's an article from the Aspen Daily- https://www.aspendailynews.com/article_17701

I havent been keeping up with snow conditions on Longs this winter, but I will be checking out the webcam as soon as the sun rises- https://mms.nps.gov/romo/netcam.jpg
My guess is he hopes to ski the Cable Route, I cant imagine there is enough snow to ski off the SW face of the summit and get to the Trough Couloir, or to ski his way over to the couloir via. the Homestretch. But this is Davenport, he could easily ski a route like Homestretch to Notch to Broadway to Lambs (may require spring snow conditions).

Whats that? you have been living under a rock for the last year, well check out https://www.skithe14ers.com

Man, seeing all those trip reports sure makes me want to move out of FlatBoat and find some REAL mountains to climb.

He got it!

The word on Lou Dawson's WebBlog is that Chris got a succsessfull descent off Longs on Friday.
The trip report has not been posted yet, Chris must be too lazy to bring his lap top along in his pack ;). But he says Neal Beidleman, Nick Devore and himself found a skiable line on the southerly side of the mountain.
Nice job on everything Dav, I'm glad you were able to safely finish your project with such perfect timing.
