I'm still dumbfounded that the wife agreed to go camping at a climbing destination with me.
We used to get out together a lot. But now that her career has taken off, climbing is all about me and weekend trips DON'T include her.
So, if I screw this up; this very well may be our last climbing trip.
As to title states: How's Shelf right now?
I guess my main concern is if the camping is packed snow & ice or if the area is relatively clear.

I was just there last weekend. Everything is warm and dry. No snow at all at the Bank campground. Climbing at Cactus Cliff on Friday was a bit warm. Since Saturday and Sunday were even warmer we climbed in the shade at the Dark Side and Sand Gulch and it was a lot more comfortable. Wandering out into the sun was super hot. Highs for those days were around 80 degrees. Got down to low 40s at night.

Was there for Easter. get there in the next few weeks since temps Are rising. Camping is packed but if you have a car with good Clearence take the left immediately after the cattle gate at sand gulch and you can pretty much camp anywhere. Have fun.

The campgrounds are completely clear right now. I recommend camping at Sand Gulch and not the Bank. It can get pretty windy up at the Bank.
If it's cooler, cactus has a bunch of fun "wife appropriate" climbing, as does Sand Gulch. If it's hot the dark side has a bunch of fun 10's and 11's.
