As of 10 days ago, the road was clear of snow, but the gate was closed (by the bridge). There was almost no snow in the campground. There was snow on the trail to Pipedream.

It will be perfect conditions on any of the sunny walls and climbable at most shady walls.

When does the road/gate/campground usually open up? Thinking about possibly heading there in mid-May. JCM

Last year the gate opened up the beginning of May and we were camping there around May 11th. I don't know if this is scheduled or they just open it up when they feel like it.

Last year, we called the FS and they were helpful for planning.

The gate is open!!!!
The campgrounds are open, but not for reservations just yet. The old first come, first served.

If you need a Maple Canyon guidebook, here's a link to my website:
Maple Canyon Guidebook

Get one in the next few weeks and I'll throw in 4 or 5 climbing stickers with the guidebook.

Darren,

Thanks for the update - I was wondering when the gate would open up as well.

Your new guide has been very helpful, all the work that must have taken - thank you.

Darren,

Any idea what is dry at this point? Worth coming down for the weekend? Looks to be warm this week and weekend.

We have a guidebook too. It's available as an app on your iPhone, or as an ebook as well.
