Has anyone been up Osceola or E. Osceola in the last week? Can you tell me what the trail conditions are? (The most recent mention of either on the "Trail Conditions" page is 2/28).

Thanks,

We were up there 5 days ago and the conditions couldn't have been any better. We didn't posthole once and neither of us carried or used snowshoes. It's icy in places so crampons are very useful. The chimney bypass was slippery but very easy to negotiate with 12 point crampons. With the new snow you'll have to watch out for the many holes in this trail, especially between the summits. A couple of us posted trip reports this past weekend.
