Hey all,
Me and my partner were thinking of climbing the Third Pillar this weekend and we were wondering if any of y'all had knowledge of the conditions up there. We're not too stoked to trudge through snow and would probably opt to climb something lower if it's still pretty snowy up there. Any info greatly appreciated!
Thanks!
Amelia

First day of school

I don't have any first hand info for this season specifically...

But from climbing the 3rd Pillar early on in past seasons, the approach through the forest , and the wide open plateau are likely snow free. The plateau obviously gets sun all day , so it melts out quick ...

crossing the gully to get to the base might be the only place you encounter snow . I'd think around this time , numerous parties have kicked steps across the gully , and they were pretty firm when I made it out there last ... firmer if you get out there earlier in the morning .

Besides plenty of sharp rocks to use to arrest if you start sliding :)

Not very snowy at all there now. You could kick steps in the snow following Vincent's advice, or you could even go down a little further and do the direct start to avoid the snow gully altogether. And that's about it. No snow trudging required. It really couldn't get much more in season!

Everything is a go.. Repeat we have a green light on just about everything in the park.
