Condition Updates  
Route: Comanche trail
Posted On: 2021-11-29, By: seoulman
Info: 2-3 inches of snow most of the way. Summit block had only patchy snow. Microspikes optional. The rest of the sangres looked about the same, maybe a bit drier to the north. 
Route: down to Comanche Trailhead

Info: The tundra is changing and the willows are starting to turn, but 98% of the aspen leaves between the Comanche trailhead and peak are still green - we have a few more weeks yet! 
Route: Comanche/Spring/Venable/12,873
Posted On: 2020-07-05, By: supranihilest
Info: The Comanche trail is in great shape. Maybe one fallen tree the entire way up to the pass, then an easy tundra and talus hop to Comanche. The ridge to Spring is slightly more difficult but can be made as easy as you want. 
Route: Comanche-Venable Loop
Posted On: 2020-06-04, By: tjf242424
Info: Summer conditions aside from two small traverses on snow on the Comanche Trail, easily crossed in approach shoes (no traction). There is still a significant cornice at the Comanche saddle, but it is easy to climb straight up to the ridge just before reaching the snow. The ridge on Comanche, the traverse over Spring, the ascent of Venable, and the Venable Trail back to the trailhead are all completely dry. 
Route: North Ridge
Posted On: 2019-08-04, By: dolfh
Info: The trail up to Comanche Pass is muddy, but free of snow. There is an indistinct trail along the edge of the North Ridge to the summit. The slope angle near the top exceeds 40 degrees. The mosquitoes are terrible. 
Route: via Middle Fork N Crestone Creek

Info: Beautiful weather, totally dry, full summer on the Venable, Spring, and Comanche Hiked Fluted, Little Horn, and Horn, same, all from N Crestone TH. Only downside: mosquitos meant BUSINESS until about 11,500 or whenever a breeze came through.
